How to Prepare for Health Open Enrollment

Discover your options and prepare for Open Enrollment

CalPERS Health Open Enrollment starts September 9 and ends October 4, 2019.

Discover your options. Beginning August 26, log in to your my|CalPERS account—or on your mobile device at—to access Open Enrollment information and resources.

There you can view your Health Plan Statement, which lists your 2019 premium and 2020 premium should you remain with the same health plan, plus a wealth of other customized information.

Use the Search Health Plans tool to explore available health plans based on your eligibility ZIP code, and review side-by-side benefit costs. New this year is the ability to search for the CalPERS health plans your doctor accepts. For the initial launch, the search includes doctors in Basic health plans. Medicare members will need to contact plans directly, as they do today, to verify their doctor is included in their Medicare plan. Keep in mind that information shown in the tool is subject to change. Therefore, before making any plan changes, verify with the health plan that your selected doctor is available.
