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.
  • ID cards are issued by each health plan, not by CalPERS. Contact your health plan directly if you need additional cards.
  • Carefully review your 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.
