Helping you and your family achieve & maintain good health is important to the County of San Luis Obispo. 


Mark Your Calendars for October 13 - October 28, 2022

During this period, employees and retirees will be able to make updates to their medical, dental and vision plans as well as make dependent changes. The new plans will be effective January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023.

While it is always recommended to take this opportunity to review your benefit elections, no action is required unless:

  • You waive County medical insurance. You are required to take action during Open Enrollment to provide proof of other coverage to continue to waive.

  • If you participate in a Health or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA). Your FSA or HSA election amounts need to be selected each plan year.
