Serving those who serve South Carolina

  Insurance benefits

PEBA manages insurance programs for South Carolina's public workforce. The largest program, the State Health Plan, is a self-funded health insurance plan. That means your premiums are not paid to an insurance company, but instead are held in a trust fund. Your claims and the Plan's administrative expenses are paid from this trust fund.


PEBA partners with the state's public employers to provide comprehensive insurance coverage. We strive to keep costs responsive to employee needs and fair to all stakeholders. By sharing your medical costs, our programs can help you find ways to live a healthier, and, we hope, happier life.
