Open enrollment for STRS Ohio’s medical plans is Nov. 1–23, 2021. During this time, eligible benefit recipients and their family members can make changes to their current coverage or enroll in a plan for the first time. Coverage begins on Jan. 1, 2022, for plans selected during the open-enrollment period. Visit the Open-Enrollment Resource Center for more information.

Please note, this open-enrollment period is for medical and prescription drug coverage only. Dental and vision enrollment and plan changes are not permitted at this time.

Current medical plan enrollees will receive medical/prescription plan information in late 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.)

It’s easy to make enrollment changes online. If you want to add coverage, cancel your enrollment or change plans after reviewing your materials, log in to your Online Personal Account and select “Health Care.” Then select “Enroll, Cancel or Change Medical Plan” under Useful Links on your health care page. If you do not have an account, click here to register.

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

Opportunities to join a plan are limited outside of open enrollment, so please respond by Nov. 23 if you want to change your plan enrollment or add coverage for next year.
