Benefit Open Enrollment time for AMEA members!

Dear AMEA member,

Open enrollment for full-time health benefits begins next week on Oct. 6 through Oct. 29, 2021.

If you are currently enrolled in City medical coverage, you must make a medical plan selection during open enrollment. If you don't, you will be automatically enrolled in the new Blue Shield Trio HMO. Trio is a medical plan that covers only in-network providers and facilities. The plan also requires you to select a primary care doctor responsible for overall coordination of your care. 

For those who do not have benefits through the City, you can only sign up during the open enrollment period. Please note: Aetna coverage is no longer available.

Health Expo
On Thursday, Oct. 7, the City is holding a Health Expo from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Downtown Anaheim Youth Center, 225 S. Philadelphia Street, 92805 (behind City Hall). You can visit booths, meet representatives, get your questions answered, donate blood, and win prizes.

As open enrollment approaches, more details will be available on

In Solidarity,

Mike Holmes
AMEA President
