The 2017 open enrollment season for the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System officially kicks off Oct. 15.
For Medicare-eligible retirees, it means reviewing current medical/prescription drug plans and assessing if change is necessary. If you are keeping the plan you selected for 2016, you do not need to contact OneExchange. Your 2016 selections will automatically carry over into 2017.
Tune in to a new video as OPERS Health Care Project Manager Gretchen Feldmann discusses things to think about when considering change and what to do if change is or is not on the horizon. She also reviews the different roles each OneExchange subject matter expert plays in the enrollment process.
This video also can be found on the OPERS YouTube channel.
In addition to this video and the personalized open enrollment material currently being mailed, OPERS will hold Tele-Town Hall meetings in October to share details and answer questions about open enrollment and OneExchange. If OPERS has your phone number, you’ll be notified 48 hours in advance of when a Tele-Town Hall will take place for you.
