Health Savings Account
If you enroll in the Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP), PEBP will be providing seed money into a Health Savings Account (HSA) to help offset your out of pocket expenses. If you do not qualify for a HSA, your will still receive the seed money, but it will be in the form of a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA).

For Plan Year 2014, the PEBP Board approved using PEBP's unrestricted surplus to provide employees with one-time contributions to the HSA/HRA accounts. This one time contribution will only be available for those who are enrolled in the CDH Plan on July 1, 2013. The contributions are as follows:

  Regular HSA/HRA PEBP Contribution One-time Contribution Total HSA/HRA PEBP Contribution
Participant $700.00 $697.00 $1,397.00
Per Dependent (maximum of 3 dependents) $200.00 $215.00 $415.00

You can use these contributions to pay for your out-of-pocket medical and prescription costs, including your deductible.

If you qualify for the HSA, you can also elect to contribute additional money on a pre-tax basis to your HSA to a maximum of $3250.00 if you have participant only coverage or $6,450.00 if you have family (two or more individuals) coverage. Please note that the PEBP contribution is included in this limit.

Additional information on the HSA is available on-line:

If you do not qualify for the HSA, PEBP will open an HRA account for you. The HRA is owned by PEBP and you will not be eligible to add any money into an HRA account.
