CalPERS Open Enrollment Continues. Open Enrollment ends this Friday, October 13. During this period, you can make changes to your health plans. The CASE MOU provides for increases to the Consolidate Benefit (CoBen) received by each member with CalPERS coverage. The CoBen covers 80% of premiums for the member and family premiums. As a service to members, CASE has calculated members’ monthly out-of-pocket costs for all the plans available to active employees. You can review a chart of the 2024 CoBen amounts, plans, and fees here. For more information and to explore your 2024 health plan options, log in to your my|CalPERS account or visit the CalPERS Plans & Rates page. You can also use CalHR’s CoBen Calculator or check out on-demand information on the process from CalHR’s Open Enrollment Benefits Fair.
