When a spouse or domestic partner waives coverage through another employer's group health plan, it concentrates risks and costs in PEBB instead of spreading them more broadly. When you enroll, you select your status related to other employer group coverage available to your spouse or domestic partner.
If your spouse or partner waives group coverage available through his or her other non-Oregon-state-agency employer, you will have $50 deducted from your pay for spouse or domestic coverage in PEBB.
If your spouse or domestic partner takes that other coverage during the PEBB plan year,
you have the opportunity to change your status in this program to end the deduction. See Sections 4 and 6e of the Midyear Change form available by clicking here
