Sacramento Business Journal

The California Public Employees’ Retirement System kicked off open enrollment Monday for almost 1.4 million state, local government and public school employees, retirees and their families.

This is the four-week period each fall when employees choose health care coverage for the upcoming year. The enrollment period ends Oct. 10; coverage changes take effect Jan. 1, 2015. The stakes are huge for health plans because the program spends more than $7.5 billion annually.
