The Public Employees' Benefit Board designs, contracts for and administers employee benefits for Oregon state employees and their dependents - about 138,000 Oregonians - who live and work in every county in the state.
The benefit program includes core health care benefits (medical, dental and vision) and optional benefits such as life and disability insurance and flexible spending accounts.
The Board comprises eight voting members - four represent labor and four 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.
