Open Enrollment for 2022: October 1 to November 15

Open enrollment is your opportunity to review and make changes to your SERS health care coverage for the following year. It is the only time you can change your coverage, and enroll in or cancel dental and/or vision coverage.

For benefit recipients currently enrolled in a SERS health care plan, you will receive an Open Enrollment packet in the mail in September. Details of upcoming changes to the SERS Health Care program will be included in the Open Enrollment Guide. Our Health Care Services team will also host three live webinars to discuss these changes in October and November.  Sign-up information is available below.

Unable to attend the live webinars? You can also watch a recording of the presentation below.

Please call Health Care Services toll-free at 800-878-5853 or email healthcare@ohsers.org with any questions.
