PEBB/SEBB Appeals Unit Update:

  1. The Appeals unit new fax number is (360)763-4709.
  2. Please a reminder to employers to never download and save the appeal form (or if they must do please remind them to always update their records with the new appeal form each year as things change on our appeal form from year to year)
  3. BACKLOG UPDATE- Due to the implementation of the SEBB Program and the current state furloughs, the PEBB/SEBB Appeals unit is still working through a backlog of appeals dating back to April of this year. When an appeal is opened an acknowledgment letter is mailed to the employee with a tentative date for when the member should receive a decision by (on average decisions are being mailed about 30 days from the date that the acknowledgment letter is mailed). The Appeals Unit is also working on returning voicemails left on our 1-800 line dating back to June 10, 2020.
