Announcements

  • **Special Open Enrollment for Opposite Sex Domestic Partners**

    Effective January 1, 2020, a new California law will expand State registered Domestic Partnerships to include opposite-sex Domestic Partners under age 62.  As a result of this change, more opposite-sex couples will be eligible to register their Domestic Partner with the State and enroll them in the OUSD health plans during our Special Open Enrollment beginning January 1 to January 31, 2020.  Previously under the California State law, at least one of the opposite-sex members had to be at least 62 to qualify.

    You can find the announcement at this link and more information on the required forms at this link
