Things to Know:

It’s Your Choice provides examples of the type of Best Care and costs differences offered with PEHP.

Coverage Out of State
If you or your dependents are living out-of-state, there are two important steps. PEHP will need to be given the name and address of the member living out-of-state so they can make sure those claims are paid correctly. Send a secure email with this information to PEHP Enrollment by logging into your account at and clicking on the message icon at the top right hand side of the home page. Second, be sure to use the out-of-state network (this is where the link should be) so you can get the best discounts and pay the lowest costs. Check the back of your PEHP benefit card for more information or call 801-366-7755.

Back to School
Need immunizations for your covered family members? PEHP pays for immunization vaccines for children at 100% when you see an in-network provider – even before you meet your deductible. This applies to both The STAR Plan and Traditional Plan. See a list of all PEHP Preventive Benefits.
