Time to talk about PEBB, SEBB, Health Insurance, and Medicare


At Suzie Health Solutions, we can explain and assist in enrolling in Health and Medicare Insurance Plans. We are trained by the companies, have annual certificates for Medicare and the Healthplanfinder and hold licenses in Washington state. Annual Enrollment Periods are limited:

Enrollment Periods

Medicare is from October 1 through the 14 we can talk about the changes for the following year.  From October 15th through December 7th, we can enroll and make changes to Medicare plans. Note we do not work for company retirement plans such as PEBB or SEBB. We can assist with Medicare Plan D Prescription plans, Dental or alternatives.

Healthcare enrollment is from November 1st through December 15th for plans starting January 1st 2023. Since we have a state-run exchange, they can extend it like this year we have a bonus enrollment period from December 16th through January 15th for plans starting on February 1st, 2023.

We are not employees of the Healthcare Authority. The HCA is the largest purchaser of healthcare in the state. We are not paid by them to answer questions about the PEBB or SEBB Plans. They have never offered to contract with us for this service.

If you are preparing to retire, they offer monthly retirement webinars.

The 2023 PEBB Retiree Monthly Premiums can be found here.

The Medical Benefit Retirement tool can be found here.

The Healthcare Authority can be contacted here. They have an office in Olympia that doesn't take appointments. PEBB Benefits Services phone line is 1-800-200-1004

We can answer some basic questions for clients regarding outside policies however our focus is on Medicare, Apple Health, Health Insurance and Property Insurance customers. Being a family run business with set deadlines, we have limited resources available.

We do take appointments here.

The gig economy and life insurance

It takes minutes Temporary work, contract jobs, seasonal jobs, freelance, piece work, driving for Uber, selling on Etsy, etc. The gig economy has been around for ever. Whether it is picking apples for the season, working the slopes at mission ridge, to being a contractor at a server farm it is easy to fall into a gig career path.

Long Term Care insurance and the WA Cares Fund

At Suzie Health Solutions , we are the full service enrollment center located in Wenatchee, WA. We get asked a lot of insurance questions. If you have not heard. Long term care in Washington State is changing this year. Long Term Care is the next big insurance problem facing the United States. It is no wonder why Washington state started to address the problem with House Bill 1087 & House Bill 1323 . Long Term Care is not part of health insurance or Medicare. It often falls under Medicaid programs after all the individuals’ resources have been exhausted. That is correct. If you have a private plan then those funds are run out first and then everything else to pay for your care . Yes, you can work hard all your life build up serious assets and if you don't plan for long term care leave little or nothing for your children.

Cheap Health Insurance, Washington Healthplanfinder and Enrollment Centers

The Washington Healthplanfinder started the Full Service Enrollment Centers about six years ago. Some are run by small businesses (brokers) and some are run by corporations (navigators). When the Healthplanfinder put out the request, we seemed to be a good fit. There are some rules to operate an Enrollment Center.  1. Easy access to the public and open year round. 2. Enhanced Security and Insurance. 3. Experienced In person assisters.  4. Offer all plans regardless of pay.  5. No additional fees.  From our experience of working with insurance for nearly a decade. Always select a broker. If not us then someone connected to a Enrollment Center. You are already paying for them ($0 Dollars) and if you need assistance or have questions then you have a prepared customer service team. It is an easy way to support a small business and help build a community resource.  Special Interview with Coordinated Care CEO There are enhanced features such as ability to assist with Long Term Care, Life Ins
