To improve customer service and save you time, we’re launching a new tool that will allow active members to submit most health enrollment changes, along with supporting documentation, online through their myCalPERS account. This will occur in phases.

New Tool Available Now to State Active Members

The December launch is for state active members only. It excludes public agencies, schools, non-central state agencies, and California State Universities (CSU).

With a qualifying event, state active members who are currently enrolled in health benefits can:

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

What State Active Members Need to Know

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

Your Human Resources (HR) department will receive an electronic notification when you submit a 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 myCalPERS account.

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

Next Phase of Health Enrollment Self-Service Tool for All Active Members

Beginning June 19, 2022, all active members, which includes public agencies, schools, state and non-central state agencies will be able to use the new tool. CSU and their employees remain excluded.

With this launch, eligible active members will be able to newly enroll themselves and their family in health benefits. Additionally, with a qualifying event, those already enrolled in health benefits, will be able to:

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

In September 2022, active members will be able to submit all Open Enrollment changes online.
