Open Enrollment for the 2021 plan year will be from October 15, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Due to different City-sponsored programs competing for LACERS health staff’s availability, the typical Open Enrollment period will be extended to allow Members and staff more time to process health plan enrollments and changes.
You will receive an Open Enrollment packet in early October, as normal. It will include all the pertinent information, including an overview of health plan updates for 2021 and the latest Health Benefits Guide (HBG).
Criteria for qualifying events can be found on our website here.
Due to the threat of COVID-19, LACERS will not be holding its traditional Open Enrollment in-person events this year, and will instead conduct meetings via Zoom with the option to call-in via phone. LACERS will offer these virtual meetings with each carrier (Anthem Blue Cross, Kaiser Permanente, SCAN Health Plan, UnitedHealthcare, Delta Dental, and Anthem Blue View), which will include LACERS updates for the coming plan year, a presentation by the carrier, and a question and answer session.
Be sure to review more details about the upcoming Open Enrollment process, including how you can receive support using Zoom, here.
