Attention: LACERA Anthem Blue Cross Members
You may have seen in the news recently that Anthem, the parent company of one of our retiree health insurance providers, was the victim of a highly sophisticated cyber attack. At this point, we do not know if any LACERA members have been affected. We have been in close contact with Anthem, and will make our members aware of any further developments as they become available by updating our website. For more information on this security breach click here Anthem Data Breach. (2-6-15)
LACERA-ADMINISTERED HEALTHCARE BENEFITS PROGRAM
The LACERA-administered healthcare benefits program applies to current retirees and members hired prior to June 30, 2014.
LACERA offers retirees a choice of medical plans, as well as two dental/vision plans. Retirees can choose an HMO or Indemnity medical plan, or select a Medicare HMO or supplemental plan. Over 40,000 retirees and dependents are currently enrolled in a LACERA-administered healthcare benefits program. In addition, for members over sixty-five, we offer Medicare supplement or Medicare HMO plans. For a complete listing of the plans see Healthcare Plans. Annually, you will receive a complete package in the mail containing all the LACERA healthcare options that are available.
NOTE: When you retire, you must select a new medical, dental, and vision plan within sixty days of your retirement. Your active member medical coverage will not continue after retirement.
