Healthcare Changes

The State of Washington provides health plans for medical, dental and vision care for all school employees across the state effective Jan. 1, 2020. This new insurance program is managed by the School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) of the Washington State Health Care Authority.

SEBB aims to standardize benefits, rules, and costs for those working in K-12 education across the state. All staff who work at least 630 hours in a school year qualify for full benefits. 

There are many significant changes to your healthcare coverage resulting from this transition to SEBB and the district is here to support and guide you and your families through this process.

Critical Coverage Clarification

The Premera network being offered under the School Employee Benefits Board (SEBB) starting Jan. 1 is not the same Premera network we have now. The Premera network under SEBB is called Heritage Prime, which is a more exclusive network and does not contract with Providence-owned facilities, which includes Kadlec.

This means that Kadlec and its clinics will not be in-network for anyone on a Premera plan after Jan. 1 and they will be billed the out-of-network cost for services.

Trios Health in Kennewick and Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco are the only in-network hospital options in the Tri-Cities for staff choosing a SEBB Premera plan.

The Kaiser Permanente plans also have Kadlec, Lourdes and their respective clinics included in its network. The Uniform Medical Plans (UMP) will have Kadlec, Lourdes, Trios and their respective clinics in its network.

To ensure that your preferred physician or clinic is in-network, please use the links to provider directories in the tabs below.
