SERS Open Enrollment runs from October 1 to November 15, 2018

Are you enrolled in SERS’ health care coverage? If so, Open Enrollment is your opportunity to review and make changes to your SERS health care coverage for 2019. It is also your opportunity to enroll in or cancel dental and/or vision coverage.

You will receive your Open Enrollment packet in the mail in late September. If you do not receive your packet by October 1, please call Health Care Services toll-free at 800-878-5853 or email healthcare@ohsers.org.

 

New in 2019

  • Premiums are decreasing for most enrollees in the Aetna Medicare (PPO), Paramount Elite, and PrimeTime plans.
  • The Medicare plan specialist office visit co-pay is decreasing to $30 from $40.
  • Premiums are decreasing for Aetna Choice POS II participants but increasing for AultCare PPO plan participants.
  • There is only one benefit change to non-Medicare plans: the emergency room cost-share is changing to a $150 co-pay from 20% coinsurance.

Learn more about these and other changes in your 2019 Open Enrollment Guide. You also can attend an in-person meeting OR register to participate in our November 8 webinar to learn about the changes.

Registration is not required for the in-person meetings.
