Retiree Open Enrollment:
September 29-October 31, 2014 

2015 Retiree Open Enrollment is coming soon! Open Enrollment is your chance to review your benefit options and make changes to your current plan. Any changes you make during this time are effective January 1, 2015. If you do not wish to make any changes to your benefits, no action is required.

This fall's Open Enrollment will begin Monday, September 29, and will end Friday, October 31. You will receive the 2015 Retiree Benefit Summary in the mail at your home address. The Retiree Benefit Summary will explain this year's benefit changes, list 2015 benefit rates, detail the process to make changes to your benefit options, and include the benefit enrollment form. As Open Enrollment approaches, that information will also be available on this web page.

New for 2015

  • The MCPS CVS Caremark prescription plan will change to a Part D prescription plan for Medicare-eligible retirees and dependents. If you and/or your dependents are Medicare-eligible and enrolled in the MCPS CVS Caremark plan, the administrator of your prescription benefit will change to SilverScript/Caremark. You will not need to take any action; you will be enrolled in the Part D plan automatically. In October, SilverScript/Caremark will send you Medicare Part D information.
  • CareFirst will offer a Point-of-Service/Preferred Provider Organization plan to eligible MCPS retirees. The new plan will offer access to both local and national network providers.
  • CareFirst also will offer an Indemnity/Medicare Supplemental plan for Medicare-eligible retirees and dependents.
