Public Employees' Benefit Board

Board Members

The Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) is working for you!

The Board selects and manages:

  • Your medical, dental and vision benefits,
  • Optional benefits like life and disability insurance, and
  • A variety of programs to support your physical and mental wellbeing.

The Board works on behalf of all eligible public employees and retirees. That's nearly 143,000 PEBB members and their dependents who live and work in every county in the state.

The Board works to ensure that PEBB continues to offer great benefits at great costs. They do this by managing budget limitations and making informed decisions about the benefits offered.

The Board is made up of 10 members, who meet each month. There are eight voting members — four who represent labor and four who represent management. Certain management members serve in an unofficial capacity; the rest are nominated by the governor and approved by the senate. The Board also includes two non-voting members of the legislature.

The Board is an integral part of PEBB. We want to help all members learn more about this important group. PEBB will share more information and stories about how the Board is at your service. Stay tuned!

Coordinated Care 

The Coordinated Care Model exhibits the Key Components of the Board's Vision.

We seek optimal health for our members through a system of care that is patient-centered, focused on wellness, coordinated, efficient, effective, accessible, and affordable. The system emphasizes the relationship between patients, providers, and their community; is focused on primary care; and takes an integrated approach to health by treating the whole person.

  • An innovative delivery system in communities statewide that uses evidence-based medicine to maximize health and use dollars wisely
  • A focus on improving quality and outcomes, not just providing health care
  • Promotion of health and wellness through consumer education, healthy behaviors, and informed choices
  • Appropriate provider, health plan and consumer incentives that encourage the right care at the right time and place
  • Accessible and understandable information about costs, outcomes, and other health data that is available for informed decision-making
  • Benefits that are affordable to employers and employees.​
