Benefits Alert:

We have just been notified by CalPERS that the PPO Basic Plans Maximum Calendar Year Co-pays on page 17 of the 2015 Health Benefit Summary for an individual ($4,600) and family ($9,200) is incorrect.  

According to CalPERS, the accurate PPO Basic Plans Maximum Calendar Year Co-pay amounts are the same amounts for 2014 which are $3,000 (individual) and $6,000 (family) for PERS Select and Choice; and $2,000 (individual) and $4,000 (family) for PERSCare.  This information supersedes information previously communicated to us by CalPERS. CalPERS stated the 2015 Health Benefit Summary booklets will be revised and posted on the CalPERS website.

As a result of CalPERS’ recent communication, the MOOP limit chart has been updated and can be accessed here: MOOP Limits Applicable to CalPERS Health Plans
