“Prior to moving, I ensured that my PEBB plan coverage extended to Idaho. Our plan offers so many benefits, with low or no copayments, people we talk to are amazed. And now with both of us on Medicare, our monthly premiums have been substantially reduced." - Randy Jones, PEBB retiree

“After retiring in 2020, my wife and I bought a new house and moved to North Idaho.

“Just one month after the move, while still in the process of fixing up and selling our old home, I suffered a nearly fatal heart attack while out on my daily walk. With no prior history of heart problems, I thought it was just heartburn, but after just barely making it back home, I called 911 and got a quick trip to the hospital. Luckily, we now live close to a major medical center.

“I am on the mend and, along with a healthier diet, plan on enjoying several more years of retirement. I don’t think I could’ve found better coverage than by being a PEBB member.”
