HR News & Updates

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:

CSUSM Benefits Open Enrollment!

To All Benefits Eligible Employees:

The annual open enrollment period for CalPERS health, CSU dental, Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA), Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA), FlexCash, and the CSU Voluntary Benefits plans starts Monday, Sep. 15, 2014 and will continue until 4 p.m., Friday, Oct. 10, 2014. The open enrollment period is the time each year when CSUSM employees can view the health premiums for the next plan year, evaluate their benefits choices and make changes if desired. Open enrollment also gives employees the opportunity to enroll or re-enroll in the CSU DCRA/HCRA plans if they choose to start participating or continue participating in these programs.

The effective date for all changes made during the open enrollment period will be Jan. 1, 2015. To view the open enrollment newsletter, 2015 health premium rates and benefit forms, please visit the following link:

As a reminder, you are invited to attend CSUSM’s Benefits & Wellness Resource Fair taking place Wednesday, September 10, 2014 (10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.) in the University Student Union Ballroom. 

All required forms must be submitted to Human Resources no later than October 10, 2014, 4:00 p.m. Human Resources partners with other California State agencies such as the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) and the State Controller’s Office (SCO) to process open enrollment transactions. Due to the volume of open enrollment transactions that these agencies process, they will not accept enrollment changes submitted after the deadline. For questions regarding CSUSM’s benefits programs or deadlines, please contact Human Resources at (760) 750-4418 or your department HR Analyst.
