Open Enrollment


It's Open Enrollment Season! Open Enrollment is the time to select your benefit choices for 2020. The City will be accepting Open Enrollment changes through the Employee Online System from November 1st through November 22nd, 2019. Be advised that paper enrollment forms will not be accepted. Please review the Open Enrollment Benefit Letter for important 2020 plan changes.


  • A new, Blue Shield Trio HMO 20 plan will be offered. The new plan includes benefit coverage that mirrors the Blue Shield HMO 20, however monthly premiums are at a lower cost than the Blue Shield HMO 20 plan, and the only difference is a narrower network of doctors to choose from.
  • All Kaiser and Blue Shield plans experienced a rate increase. Please review your corresponding bargaining unit rate sheet for premium information.
  • There will be an increase to the annual benefit cap for Delta Dental DPO and Local Advantage dental plans from $2,000 to $2,500 as well as a rate increase. Additionally, Local Advantage will offer a 50% coverage for dental implants.
  • There will be an increased allowance for frames and lenses with VSP, from $120 to $150 per year.
