PEBA contracts with a pharmacy benefits manager, currently Express Scripts, to provide you with prescription drug benefits. Prescription drugs are a major benefit to you and a major part of the cost of our self-insured health plan.
The focus in a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is on proactively addressing health conditions rather than just reacting to health issues when they arise. A team of doctors and professionals helps patients improve their health by working with them to set goals and make a treatment plan. This approach may be particularly beneficial to members with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
PEBA offers two plans to help you offset the costs of your dental care, which is an important part of your overall health care: the State Dental Plan and Dental Plus. BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina is the current administrator for both plans.
PEBA provides you with two options for taking care of your vision. The State Vision Plan and the Vision Care Discount Program both offer benefits to help you take action to keep seeing clearly. The State Vision Plan is administered by EyeMed.
Life insurance can help you protect your loved ones in the event of your untimely death, and eligible employees can do so with Optional Life coverage. If you’re eligible to do so, you can also cover your eligible spouse and/or children with Dependent Life coverage. The life insurance programs PEBA offers are underwritten by Minnesota Life, a Securian Financial Group Affiliate.
Most of us don’t think we will ever become disabled and be in a position in which we can no longer work. Statistics tell another story and it’s best to be prepared in case it happens to you. PEBA can help with the state’s Basic Long Term Disability coverage and optional Supplemental Long Term Disability insurance, both administered by Standard Insurance Company (The Standard).
Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and the state’s tax-favored accounts program, which includes a pretax premium payment, medical spending account and dependent care spending account features, can help you pay for some of your medical and dependent care expenses before Uncle Sam gets his share of your pay. WageWorks is the current MoneyPlus program administrator.
