2013 Vested Health Premium Rates
The CAPS MOU requires the state pay 80% of the weighted average of the four largest plans. As a result, the state’s 2013 contribution toward each employee’s health plan is $495 for a single, $992 for two-party and $1,288 for families. Employees must pay the difference between the state contribution rate and the premium for the enrolled health plan.
Details on plan changes will come directly from CalPERS to individual members, or go to the CalPERS website. Open enrollment is held in the Fall for the 2013 enrollment year. FlexElect open enrollment is also held at the same time.
