The 2023 Open Enrollment period is October 1-31, 2022. Now is the time to look at how you used your health insurance this year, anticipate how you will use your health insurance next year, and fine-tune your package to match!
If you want to remain in your current DERP health plan(s) in 2023, with the same covered dependents, you do not need to do anything during Open Enrollment. Your coverage(s) and carrier(s) will remain the same.
Have you reviewed the Your Guide to 2023 DERP Retiree Health Insurance book?
You should have received the Your Guide to 2023 DERP Retiree Health Insurance book in your mailbox. This book provides a wealth of information to help you select medical, dental, and/or vision plans for the upcoming year.
If you didn’t receive your book, it is available on the website. Click Retired Members, select Health Insurance, and expand the 2023 Health Insurance Options accordion.
Does your existing plan meet next year’s needs?
Great! You don’t need to do anything during Open Enrollment. Your coverage will remain the same for 2022.
