Open Enrollment - Miscellaneous Information

Availability of Summary Health Information

Your plan offers a series of health coverage options. Choosing a health coverage option is an important decision. To help you make an informed choice, the PEBTF makes available a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC), which summarizes important information about any health coverage option in a standard format, to help you compare across options.

The SBC for each option is available at A paper copy is also available, free of charge, by calling 1-800-522-7279.

Important Information for Spouses Enrolled in Their Employer’s Health Savings Account

More and more companies are offering high-deductible health plans with a Health Savings Account (HSA). Enrollment in these plans most often does not allow the member to be enrolled in another health plan as secondary coverage. If your spouse has HSA coverage through his/her employer and is enrolled in PEBTF benefits as secondary coverage, he or she will be subject to tax penalties.

We encourage spouses to check with their employers to ensure that they can be enrolled in PEBTF coverage as secondary.

If your spouse has HSA coverage through his/her employer, you may remove him/her from PEBTF coverage at any time throughout the year to avoid any tax penalties.
