Open enrollment for STRS Ohio’s medical plans is Nov. 1–26, 2019. During this time, eligible benefit recipients and their family members can make changes to their current medical coverage or enroll in a plan for the first time. Coverage begins on Jan. 1, 2020, for plans selected during the open-enrollment period. Visit the Open-Enrollment Resource Center for more information.

Current medical plan enrollees will receive plan materials in the mail at the end of October. If you elected the paperless option, you will receive an email when your materials are available in your STRS Ohio Online Personal Account. (You will not receive materials in the mail.) If you want to make enrollment changes after reviewing your materials, please submit changes through your Online Personal Account.

If you are not currently enrolled in an STRS Ohio medical plan and are interested in coverage, please call STRS Ohio toll-free at 888‑227‑7877 or email [email protected] to request your personalized open-enrollment information.

Opportunities to join a medical plan are limited outside of open enrollment, so please submit requests through your Online Personal Account by Nov. 26 if you want to change your plan enrollment or add coverage for next year.

Note: This open-enrollment period is for medical and prescription coverage only. Dental and vision enrollment and plan changes are not permitted at this time.
