Open Enrollment for CalPERS members started September 14 and ends October 9. Changes made during this open enrollment period take effect January 1, 2016. During this time, eligible employees may:

Enroll in a CalPERS health plan if you don’t currently have CalPERS health coverage

  • Add dependents to your health coverage
  • Remove dependents from your health coverage
  • Change your CalPERS health plan
