To improve customer service and save you time, we’ve updated a tool that allows all active members, excluding California State University employees, to submit most health enrollment changes, along with supporting documentation, online through their myCalPERS account.

With a qualifying event, all eligible active members, who work for public agencies, schools, state, and non-central state agencies, can enroll themselves and their families into health benefits. Additionally, with a qualifying event, active members who are currently enrolled in health benefits can:

  • Add or remove dependents
  • Change health plans
  • Recertify a parent-child relationship
  • Cancel coverage

Beginning September 19, 2022, active members will be able to submit Open Enrollment changes online. This includes:

  • Add or remove dependents
  • Change health plans
  • New enrollment
  • Cancel coverage

What All Active Members Need to Know

Use of this new functionality is at the discretion of your employer. Confirm with them before you submit changes online.

When using myCalPERS to submit your health enrollment changes, you’ll see which documents are required, and can upload them at your convenience.

Your agency’s Health Benefits Officer will receive an electronic notification, when you submit a new enrollment or change request, to verify eligibility and approve the request.

You can view the status of your request at any time in your myCalPERS account. Once your HR department approves, you will receive an electronic confirmation in your account along with a letter.

Refer to our Health Enrollment Self-Service in myCalPERS video for instructions on how to make health enrollment changes through your myCalPERS account.
