Health Benefits

Open Enrollment Is Here

2022 Open Enrollment Starts September 19 and Ends October 14

It’s the time of year to enroll in or make changes to your health, vision, or dental plans, add eligible dependents, or delete dependents. Take this time to review your health coverage and select the plan that is right for you.

Log in to your myCalPERS account to access Open Enrollment information and resources:

  • View your Health Plan Statement, which lists your monthly 2022 premium and 2023 premium should you remain with the same health plan, as well as dependents on your plan, and other important information. A Guide to Understanding Your Health Plan Statement is available on our website.
  • Use the Search Health Plans tool to explore health plans based on your eligibility ZIP code, search for your doctor or specialist, review side-by-side benefit costs, and view member health plan satisfaction ratings. Medicare members will need to contact the plans or their doctors directly for availability.
  • Visit your Health Open Enrollment Page, located under the Health tab of the home page. You’ll find everything you need to know and tools and publications to help you make an informed decision about your health plan options.
