Each year, CARE members are offered the opportunity to select medical benefit plans during the District's open enrollment period. We have compiled a list of questions that may be helpful to members comparing available plans.
The first and best source of answers to all questions concerning retirement medical benefits is the Chabot-Las Positas CCD Human Resources Department Benefits staff. The plans available to a particular retiree depend on circumstances specific to that retiree; only the District Benefits Staff can provide accurate information. For most plans, District Benefits Staff can provide a plan booklet that contains many answers.
