Health Plan Chooser

The Health Plan Chooser is an online tool that helps you evaluate health plan options.

You can use the Chooser to:

  • Review the services that each health plan covers
  • Access doctor directories, drug formularies and Evidence of Coverage publications
  • Estimate out-of-pocket costs
  • View health care quality and patient experience ratings

The Chooser takes you through five steps that provide you with key information about each health plan. When you finish, the Chooser gives you a Results Summary chart highlighting the plan(s) you rate as the best fit in each category.

The Health Plan Chooser is hosted by the Pacific Business Group on Health. After using the tool, you can share your thoughts about it by completing a survey. If you need more assistance, contact CalPERS at 888 CalPERS (or 888-225-7377).
