Important Changes to CITY OF SAN DIEGO RETIREE HEALTHcare Plans

The City of San Diego and the San Diego Public Employee Benefits Association (SDPEBA) have changed the effective date of their healthcare plan offerings. Starting January 1, 2023, the City-sponsored retiree health plans will be effective based on the calendar year, rather than the fiscal year. 


Health Open Enrollment for 2023 took place from November 1 to November 30, 2022.

Booklets containing rates and additional information have been mailed to all City retirees. You can download an electronic copy and the comparison chart at the bottom of this page. The health providers are the same as last year – so if you are NOT changing your health plan, you do not have to take any action.
