The major changes, effective July 1, 2023, include:

  1. Imposition of the spouse surcharge for active employee policyholders from state agencies, colleges, universities, and county boards of education whose spouses are offered employer-sponsored insurance coverage but who choose to get coverage through a plan offered by PEIA. This change does not affect non-state agencies, retirees, spouses who are employed by PEIA-participating agencies, or spouses whose coverage is through Medicare, Medicaid, or TRICARE.
  2. Increasing health premiums to get the plan back to an 80/20 employer/employee premium split for state agencies, colleges, universities, and county boards of education by July 1, 2023. A fourth across-the-board pay raise for state employees by Gov. Jim Justice will help cushion the impact felt by plan members.
  3. Increasing reimbursement to providers to a minimum of 110% of Medicare’s reimbursement.​

​Thanks for your patience as we work to get changes in place in advance of Open Enrollment, which begins April 2, 2023.
