Medical Insurance coverage for eligible CSU employees is administered by the California Public Employee's Retirement System (CalPERS). Several medical insurance plans are available to covered employees and their eligible dependents, with the majority of the premiums paid by the CSU. Open enrollment is typically in September, with an effective date of the following January 1. Medical benefits are also available to eligible CSU retirees and their dependents.
The standard effective date for medical coverage is the first of the month following the permitting event and receipt of enrollment form, including any supporting documentation to the Office of Human Resources.
