Retiree Open Enrollment 2019
Reminder: Retirees may not enroll in health or dental coverage after retirement. Open Enrollment is an opportunity to update your existing benefits. All rate changes take effect beginning in December 2018. Plan changes are effective January 1, 2019.If you want to keep the same coverage you had in 2018, no action is needed.
Pre-65 Health InsuranceAnthem will continue as the pre-65 retiree’s health insurance carrier. In an effort to prevent premiums from rising in 2019, changes to the retiree plans administered by Anthem will be implemented effective January 1, 2019. While the plan structures are similar, there are changes being made to all three plans. Please review the rates and plan summaries carefully and weigh which plan choice will best meet your needs.
Over the next month, the City and Anthem will hold meetings (dates and times listed in the benefit guide) to answer any questions you might have about the changes. We strongly recommend you attend one of these meetings to learn more about the changes to your coverage. Complete the Health Enrollment Application to change your coverage.
