Save the Date: 2022 Open Enrollment Virtual Meetings
LACERS has planned several virtual meetings to share updates regarding your health plans and health benefits for 2022, and to answer your questions so you can make the best healthcare decisions for you and your family.
On January 1, 2022, the Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) Life and Health Plan (Medicare Supplement) will be replaced by the Anthem Medicare Preferred PPO Plan (for Members with Medicare Parts A and B). We have scheduled several virtual meetings regarding this plan to make sure you have an opportunity to get all your questions answered. You can also contact Anthem’s First Impressions call center at (833) 848-8729 with your questions.
Beginning October 1, find out more information regarding Open Enrollment on our website at lacers.org/open-enrollment. Additionally, you may also reserve your spot to attend virtual meeting(s) via your MyLACERS account or by calling (800) 779-8328.
All virtual meetings begin at 10 a.m. on the following dates:
- LACERS 2022 Health Benefits Overview – October 19
- Kaiser Permanente – October 21
- Anthem Blue Cross – October 26
- UnitedHealthcare – October 28
- SCAN – November 2
- Delta Dental/Blue View Vision – November 4
- Anthem Medicare Preferred PPO – October 22, 29; November 5, 12
Open Enrollment Packet will be Different for Members Under Age 65
Open Enrollment will be held October 15 to November 15, 2021. This is the time to enroll in a plan, change your plan, or add dependents with changes taking effect January 1, 2022. Open Enrollment packets will be mailed out on October 13-14. For retired Members under age 65, you will receive an Open Enrollment statement, the Open Enrollment Overview and instructions on how to access the 2022 Health Benefits Guide online. If you need a hard copy after you receive your packet, you can contact LACERS to have one mailed to you. Retired Members age 65 and over will receive a printed copy of the 2022 Health Benefits Guide in their packet.
As a reminder, due to unusual circumstances, last year’s Open Enrollment period was extended to March 31, 2021, and had some stipulations. For those who made enrollment changes effective on or after February 1, 2021, unless you have a qualifying event, your next opportunity to request a change will be October 2022 during the 2023 Open Enrollment period.
