Important Changes to CITY OF SAN DIEGO RETIREE HEALTHcare Plans

The City of San Diego and the San Diego Public Employee Benefits Association (SDPEBA) will be changing the effective date of their healthcare plan offerings. Starting January 1, 2023, the City’s retiree health plans will be effective based on the calendar year, rather than the fiscal year. 
 
In order to smooth the transition, the City’s sponsored retiree healthcare plans and premiums will remain unchanged through December 31, 2022. The annual Open Enrollment period will now take place in November 2022. If you are satisfied with your current plan, you do not need to do anything right now and you will receive information about available healthcare plans for January 2023 in November.
 
If you would like to change plans before Open Enrollment in November, you may do so in June 2022. You will be able to select from the current plan offerings shown in the 2021-2022 Comprehensive Retiree Health available below. Even if you choose to change plans in June, you may still participate in Open Enrollment in November.
