If you elected to continue your University of California medical, dental and vision plans under COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985), you can make changes during UC’s Open Enrollment, with changes effective Jan. 1, 2018.

CONEXIS, UC’s COBRA administrator, will mail Open Enrollment information, 2018 rates (also available here) and an enrollment form to all UC COBRA participants eligible to continue COBRA coverage in 2018. 

You may make Open Enrollment changes via the CONEXIS website or by completing the enrollment form and returning it to CONEXIS.

Other required forms for Medicare-eligible continuants

If you are transferring into or out of an HMO medical plan for Medicare enrollees, you will need to call your new plan for additional Medicare requirements.
