During bargaining, UPE negotiated that the County hold off on freezing the Anthem 200 (Traditional) plan for another year, giving 003 staff the ability to makes changes to their health care for 2023 open enrollment.
If you wish to make any changes to your health care, open enrollment for 2023 will be held on October 17 – 28, 2022. Dental and Vision open enrollment is every three years. The county will have Open Enrollment for Medical, Dental and Vision October 17 – 28, 2022. Changes made during the 2023 Open Enrollment will be effective January 1, 2023.
Merced County has introduced two additional plans that will be offered at 2023 open enrollment being held on the dates mentioned above.
Going forward, if you choose to leave the Anthem 200 (Traditional) plan during this next open enrollment, you will not be able to switch back. IF you choose to stay in the Anthem 200 (Traditional) plan or enroll into it, you will remain the plan until you choose to leave it.
The freeze on the Anthem 200 (Traditional) plan does not remove the plan, instead it closes it so after this next open enrollment, no one will be able to join that plan.
If you wish to make changes DO NOT MISS, the open enrollment period.
Changes are made through Merced County, please contact them for any assistance with your health care.
