Learn more

Use the following resources to learn more, and ensure you are selecting the right benefit options for you and your family:

Your choices

  • Evaluate your medical plan options using the Plan Comparison Charts and other resources on the Medical plans Consider whether one of the lower-cost plans—Kaiser’s SmartCare or KingCare Select—makes sense for you.
  • Review the Benefit Access Fee associated with your medical plan if you cover a spouse or domestic partner. If you qualify for an exemption, you must confirm this each year during Open Enrollment. The Kaiser SmartCare medical plan has no Benefit Access Fees.
  • Consider enrolling in a Flexible Spending Account—Health Care and Dependent Day Care FSAs save you money by reducing your taxable income. You must re-enroll every year during Open Enrollment.
  • Add or drop family members from coverage.
  • Give to the Employee Giving Program during the Annual Giving Drive. Pledges do not rollover—you must submit your pledge each year.

All Set?

When you’re ready, login to PeopleSoft Nov. 1 – 15, and select the new Open Enrollment tile. Make your changes, review your Preview Statement, then use the Submit Enrollment button.
