Important Health Enrollment Reminders

  • Be aware that a medical group ending its contract with a health plan doesn't create a qualifying event to change plans outside of Open Enrollment.
  • You'll receive new health plan ID cards if you changed your health plan or enrolled for the first time.
  • ID cards are issued by each health plan, not by CalPERS. Contact your health plan directly if you need additional cards.
  • Carefully review your January pay warrant to ensure the health plan premium deduction was made when you change health plans, enroll for the first time, or add/delete dependents.
  • If you changed plans during Open Enrollment and you don't see the correct deduction applied by your February warrant, contact your employer's personnel specialist or health benefits officer in human resources.
  • If you changed health plans, don't continue to use your previous health plan after December 31, 2020.
