Health Benefits

Summary of Benefits and Coverage Notice

Choosing your health plan is an important decision. To assist you with this process, each health plan available through CalPERS has produced a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC). In addition, the federal government has compiled a glossary of common health insurance terms. Together, these documents provide valuable information to help you better understand your health benefit coverage and more easily compare health plan options.

To view the SBCs and glossary online, check out the 2018 Health Benefit Summary (PDF) or any of the health plan websites below. To request a free paper copy of the SBC and glossary, please contact each health plan directly.
