California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) Dependent Re-Verification Requirement
Dependent Re-Verification (DRV) is the process of re-verifying the eligibility of your spouse, domestic partner, children, stepchildren, and domestic partner children (family members) enrolled for state health and dental benefits. Government Code section 22843.1 mandates re-verifying the eligibility of your family members. Government Code section 22959 authorizes extending this review to your family members enrolled for dental benefits.
The eligibility of your family members will be re-verified once every three years. The re-verification period is based on your birth month. Employees born during the following months are required to re-verify family members during 2019: February, May, August and November.
For those employees with birthdays in May, you should have received a letter in February or March from CalPERS explaining the process and the documentation required to maintain health coverage for your dependents. Please read and ensure Human Resources has your documents prior to May 1, 2019 in order for your dependent(s) to continue receiving health coverage and avoid cancellation on 06/1/2019.

Made Changes During Open Enrollment?
Please remember to check your January pay warrant for your premium deduction and report any discrepancies to your Benefits Representative. If you made any changes during the Fall 2018 Open Enrollment Period, your new plan(s) and premium should be reflected on your January 2018 pay warrant. In addition, you should receive written confirmation and identification cards (as applicable), which were expected to be mailed out in mid-December. Watch out for these in your home mailbox.The 2019 Health Plan Rates are available on the Benefits Administration webpage.
As a reminder, you can view your benefit elections under the Benefits Summary and the Dependent and Beneficiary Coverage Summary in the portal.
