Your CSU benefits are designed to help you live and work healthier. The approaching annual open enrollment period (September 16, 2013 through October 11, 2013) is an opportune time to think about your benefits and what makes the most sense for you and your family.
During open enrollment you can enroll in, change, or cancel the following benefits:
Voluntary Benefits Plans
Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA)*
Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA)*
*Flexible Spending (Reimbursement) Account enrollees must re-enroll in order to continue contributions for the 2014 calendar year. If you do not re-enroll your deduction will stop in your November 2013 paycheck.
The CSU is committed to offering benefits plans that provide you with options to choose the right level of coverage to help manage your needs and your family’s health needs. This year, CalPERS is adding four new HMO Providers: Anthem Blue Cross, Health Net, Sharp, and United Health Care.
Even if you wish to keep your current medical plan, we strongly encourage you to visit the CalPERS web site at www.calpers.ca.gov to obtain detailed information on plan design changes (e.g. what benefits are not covered in 2014, expanded service areas, co-payment, and prescription changes).
Tips to prepare for Open Enrollment:
- Verify your mailing address: Prior to the start of Open Enrollment, CalPERS will be mailing you an Open Enrollment package directly to the mailing address indicated in our payroll systems. We encourage employees to update their mailing address through the quick and easy online process available via MySJSU (my.sjsu.edu).
- Know your benefits: Review your current benefit elections as well as dependents enrolled in each benefit plan through MySJSU (my.sjsu.edu).
To learn more about the new plans and to explore your options, please stop by the Employee Services Fair on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Barrett Ballroom inside the Student Union. Health Care vendors will be available from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m..
