New Employees

Welcome to PEEHIP!

Our website and your PEEHIP Member Handbook provide a comprehensive introduction to your employment benefits and will help you make informed decisions about which health insurance coverages are right for you and your family. 

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I enroll?

You have 30 days after your employment to enroll in any of the plans using Member Online Services (MOS). If you miss the 30-day enrollment deadline, you must wait until the next Open Enrollment period to enroll in coverage(s) with PEEHIP.

How do I enroll?

New employees who wish to enroll in PEEHIP coverage plans are required to enroll online through Member Online Services. Follow the log-in procedures and select “New Enrollment” to complete the enrollment process.

Please contact PEEHIP at 877.517.0020 if you have any questions or need assistance with the enrollment process.

Initial Premium Payment

As a new employee, if you choose to enroll in any of the PEEHIP coverage plans during your initial 30 day enrollment period, you must submit your initial premium payment electronically by selecting the “PEEHIP Services” tab at the end of the online enrollment process. After that, all other premium payments will be automatically deducted from your paycheck. If your initial premium payment is not timely submitted, a claim hold will be placed on your account.

What PEEHIP Coverages are offered?

New employees can enroll in one (1) of three (3) Hospital Medical plans and any or all of the four (4) Optional Coverage Plans. New employees can also enroll in one (1) or both of the Flexible Spending Accounts.

What is the Wellness Program policy for new employees?

All newly enrolled PEEHIP members and covered spouses have the same August 31 due date as the existing PEEHIP membership unless their new effective date of coverage occurs between June 2 and September 30. If their effective date of coverage falls within this time period, then their due date to complete their required activities will be August 31 of the following year, rather than the year in which they enroll. This means that no PEEHIP member will ever have less than 3 months to complete their wellness program requirements.
