PEBP announced late last year that Extend Health has become Towers Watson's "One Exchange" in January 2014. The PEBP website information goes on to say the change is a name change ONLY, that nothing else will be different. Participants in Extend Health will have the same benefit advisors, the same Medicare marketplace, and the same phone number (1-888-598-7545) should you need to contact them. When these changes take place, participants will receive a notice from Extend Health with additional details.
