Get Ready for Health Care Open Enrollment

Fall Meetings Offer 2014 Health Care Plan Information

STRS Ohio is offering Health Care Program Highlights Meetings to review 2014 health care plan information. These meetings, being offered in multiple locations throughout the state, will begin on Monday, Oct. 21, and will conclude on Tuesday, Nov. 19. For further information, including dates, cities and registration details, click here. An online video of this presentation will be available in late October.

Open-Enrollment Materials Will Be Mailed on Oct. 24

Open enrollment for the 2014 STRS Ohio health care plans is Nov. 1–Nov. 26, 2013. During this time, eligible benefit recipients and their family members can change health care plans for 2014 or enroll in a plan for the first time. Coverage takes effect on Jan. 1, 2014.

This open-enrollment period is important. Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, individuals may no longer enroll in the health care program outside of the annual open-enrollment period, unless they experience a qualifying event. If you or your eligible family members need coverage in 2014, this is your chance to enroll.
