Open Enrollment will be your opportunity to enroll in a health or dental plan, change your plan or add eligible dependents. Changes made during Open Enrollment become effective January 1, 2024.
For the 2024 plan year, Open Enrollment will be held from October 16, 2023, to November 16, 2023. The 2024 Open Enrollment Packet will be mailed to all retired Members in early October.
If you do not wish to make changes to your LACERS health or dental plan, no action is required. Your current plans will remain effective for the new plan year.
Additional information is included in the Open Enrollment FAQs.
Open Enrollment Meetings
If you are considering changing your medical or dental plan, LACERS encourages you to attend an Open Enrollment meeting to learn more about LACERS benefit plan options and ask questions directly to LACERS staff and insurance carrier representatives.
