Open Enrollment: October 1 through November 15, 2022

Open enrollment is your opportunity to review and make changes to your SERS health care coverage for the following year. During this time, you can enroll in or cancel dental and/or vision coverage. Non-Medicare enrollees also can change their health plan.

In September, benefit recipients currently enrolled in a SERS health care plan received an Open Enrollment packet in the mail. Details of upcoming changes to the SERS Health Care program are included in the Open Enrollment Guide, as well as in a recorded webinar.

Please email Health Care Services at healthcare@ohsers.org or call us at 1-800-878-5853 with any questions.
