LACERS OPEN ENROLLMENT IS OCTOBER 16 – NOVEMBER 16
LACERS will accept applications for health plan changes, addition of eligible dependents, and new enrollments from October 16, 2023, to November 16, 2023. Changes made during this period will become effective on January 1, 2024.
LACERS recommends reviewing the Open Enrollment material to stay informed of your benefit options. If you do not want to change plans or add dependents, you do not need to take action; your current LACERS health coverage will continue for the 2024 plan year unless otherwise noted in your materials.
The 2024 Open Enrollment packet will be mailed in early October to your address in LACERS system as of August 21, 2023. The U.S. Postal Service does not forward the packet even if you have done a “Change of Address” or “Forwarding Request.”
For Members over the age of 65 or Members who have dependents with Medicare Parts A and B, the Open Enrollment packet will consist of the 2024 Open Enrollment Statement, 2024 Health Benefits Guide, and the 2024 Open Enrollment Overview.
For Members who are under age 65 or enrolled only in a LACERS Dental plan or a Medical Reimbursement Program (MPRP) participant or are not enrolled in a LACERS plan, the packet will consist of the 2024 Open Enrollment Statement and the 2024 Open Enrollment Overview.
MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT PLAN RETURNING FOR THE 2024 PLAN YEAR
LACERS is excited to announce the return of the Anthem Life & Health Medicare Plan (Medicare Supplement) for 2024. Please review the upcoming 2024 Health Benefits Guide for the full summary of benefits, premiums, and possible cost to you before disenrolling in your current plan to enroll in this Medicare Supplement plan.
LACERS UnitedHealthcare (UHC) Nevada will also be available in the northern Nevada counties of Lyon (City of Fernly) and Washoe (City of Reno). All UHC (California, Arizona, Nevada) Members and dependents will receive new 2024 ID cards starting in December.
