Health Forms & Booklet

Please Note:

Under the San Diego Municipal Code and the IRS regulations related to Health Reimbursement Accounts, the City of San Diego will only reimburse City retirees for healthcare plan premiums. Fixed indemnity policies and cost sharing plans do not provide for medical treatment and are not reimbursable. If you have any questions about whether a new healthcare plan you are considering is reimbursable, please contact SDCERS at (619) 525-3600 before enrolling in that plan. 


CITY OF SAN DIEGO RETIREE HEALTH OPEN ENROLLMENT - PLAN YEAR 2021-2022

Health Open Enrollment for 2021-2022 took place from June 1 to June 30, 2021.

Booklets containing rates and additional information were mailed on May 24th. 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.

The City Retiree Health Open Enrollment Kick-Off and Help Day Events were cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Instead, the San Diego Public Employee Benefit Association (“SDPEBA”) once again held a Virtual Health Fair, which took place June 2, 2021. Also, just like last year, the plan providers recorded video presentations, which you can access here.
