Open Enrollment for Health Benefits Ends Oct. 8Published: October 1, 2010
The open enrollment period for health and dental insurance, flexcash, health and dependent care reimbursement account changes end on Friday, Oct. 8. Changes made during this period will become effective on Jan. 1, 2011.
Because of CalPERS and other state restrictions, requests received after Oct. 8 cannot be accepted. It’s important to note that the dependent and health care reimbursement plans require re-enrollment every year, even if an employee wishes to continue the same contribution amount. Current participants must complete a new enrollment form annually.
Please review your plans carefully; premium rates and co-payments are subject to change. Also note that effective Jan. 1, 2011, CalPERS will extend health benefits coverage to dependents up to age 26, pursuant to the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. If not currently enrolled, eligible dependents care be added during the open enrollment period. For more information, contact Benefits Services at 562/985-2381.
