CSU Annual Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment will be September 19, 2022 through October 14, 2022

All changes will be effective January 1, 2023

Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to review and update your benefit plans for the 2023 calendar year. You can enroll, change, or cancel your CalPERS health, dental, vision or Flexcash plan, enroll for the first time (or re-enroll) in Dependent Care Reimbursement (DCRA), Health Care Reimbursement (HCRA) or voluntary benefit plans.  Please also review the Chancellor's Office Open Enrollment Website for more resources and information regarding open enrollment and benefits options!

*** If you are making no changes to your current health, dental, vision or voluntary plans, you do not need to do anything during Open Enrollment. Your plans will automatically continue for the upcoming plan year (excluding any HCRA/DCRA elections).

To make Open Enrollment changes:

  1. Log into MyHumboldt, click the Open Enrollment: September 19 – October 14 link (please note you will not see this link until September 19th).  
  2. Click the ‘Select’ button next to your name and follow the prompts to make changes.
  3. Make sure you electronically sign and submit all changes.
  4. To make changes to your vision plan, visit http://csuactives.vspforme.com/ or call customer service at 1-800-400-4569. You must complete these changes with VSP directly (open enrollment info available starting 9/19.) Please note that dependents cannot be split between the Basic and Premier plan.  If you enroll yourself only into Premier (and don’t enroll dependents), your dependents will lose all vision coverage.
  5. Please review the Voluntary Benefits document for information about enrollment or making changes to an additional voluntary benefit plan.  

  Please see our Open Enrollment eBenefits Guide for more information on how to make open enrollment changes in eBenefits.

For 2023, the premiums for many plans will be changing.  Please carefully review the 2023 Health Premium Rate Sheet.    

The level of coverage for all medical, dental and vision plans will remain the same.

A Few Notable Changes:

  • PPO members will need to have a designated Primary Care Physician (PCP).  If you do not currently have a designated PCP, Anthem will assign one via your new health insurance cards.  If you wish to change the PCP, please call Anthem and they will issue you a new card with the correct PCP. This will not change the ability to see a specialist at any time.
  • Vision benefits are being enhanced to include VSP LightCare (blue light filtering lenses).  Even If you do not have prescription glasses, you can use your frame and lens benefit to get non-prescription eyewear from your VSP network doctor.  
  • Hearing aids will be covered under all health plans at 100% in both ears every 36 months when medically necessary to treat speech and language development delay due to hearing loss.

Important Things to Remember/Review:

  • The 2023 Health Premiums Rate sheet.  This is a list of monthly premiums for each health plan
  • HCRA/DCRA plans DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY ROLL FORWARD – you must re-enroll for 2023 in eBenefits if you would like your enrollment to continue into 2023. 
  • HCRA: $2,850 maximum annual contribution ($20/month minimum, $237.50/month maximum)  
  • DCRA: $5,000 maximum annual contribution ($20/month minimum, $416.66/month maximum)   
  • ASI Flex will send new HCRA enrollees a debit card (2 cards will be sent) to be used on reimbursable healthcare expenses, with no additional fee.  Returning enrollees will also be sent a debit card if they have not already been issued one. Visit ASI Flex for more information about expenses eligible for reimbursement.
  • CSU Open Enrollment Website and the Open Enrollment Benefits Guide is available for an additional review of open enrollment from the Chancellor’s Office. 
  • Review the summaries and/or evidence of coverage for each plan available on the respective websites for full information about coverage:

Voluntary Benefits Plans for Employees Not Eligible for Core CSU Benefits
