Health

Placer County provides group health insurance through Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs) or you may select In Lieu of Health (ILH).

Choosing Your Plan

Choosing your health plan is an important decision. To assist you with this process, each health plan available to you through the California Public Employees’ Retirement System has produced a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC). In addition, the federal government has compiled a glossary of common health insurance terms. Together, these documents provide important information to help you better understand your health benefit coverage and more easily compare health plan options.

To view the SBCs and glossary online, visit CalPERS Health or any of the following health plan websites. To request a free paper copy of the SBC and glossary, please contact each health plan directly. Please contact your department’s human resources office with questions regarding eligibility and enrollment.
