State Employee Health Plan Dependent Eligibility Verification (DEV)

To: All CSU, Chico — State Employees

From: Human Resources service Center

Regulations passed in 2015 require all State employees verify health eligibility for covered dependents every three years.  This process began in February 2018. All employers of the State, which includes California State University, must adhere to these regulations and CalPERS will be requesting this information from affected employees to verify the continued eligibility of existing health covered dependent’s in the plan.

CalPERS will be sending notifications to the affected employee’s mailing address on a quarterly basis, based on the employee’s birth month. For 2019, covered employees with birthdays in the months of February, May, August and November will be required to provide dependent eligibility verification documents to the Benefits Office.

Re-verification must be provided for the following covered family members:

  • Spouse
  • Domestic partner
  • Children
  • Stepchildren
  • Domestic partner children

If you do not have dependents on your health insurance plan or if you are not currently enrolled in a CSU health insurance plan, you will not need to provide any documentation.

Additional information regarding re-verification documents and FAQs may be found at Dependent Eligibility Verification (DEV) Process.
