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.
  • If you change your health plan, you’ll receive new ID cards from your new health plan.
  • You may use your current health plan through December 31, 2023 only. Your new health plan takes effect January 1, 2024.
  • 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.
  • If your January warrant doesn't show the new premium deduction, you should see the premium payment adjustment in a subsequent pay period.
  • If you don't see the correct deduction applied in your February warrant, contact your personnel specialist or health benefits officer in human resources.
