Effective April 25, 2019, the City of Baltimore’s current online Health Benefits Enrollment System known as ADP BOSS is no longer available to employees and retirees to view and make health benefits elections. The City of Baltimore has moved to a new ADP platform called ADP Benefits Marketplace. However, retirees/beneficiaries will not have direct access to the new ADP Health Benefits Enrollment System. As an alternative, retirees/beneficiaries will be required to make health benefit elections and changes by using a Baltimore City Retiree Health Benefits Enrollment Form.
In the future, when a retiree experiences a Qualified Life Event, they must request a Baltimore City Retiree Health Benefits Enrollment Form from the Office of Employee Benefits within 60 days of the qualified life event. Upon the notification of a qualified life event, a Baltimore City Retiree Health Benefits Enrollment Form will be mailed to the home address or sent to their email address if provided. The retiree will be required to complete and return the enrollment form along with required documentation that supports the qualified life event to DHR-Office of Employee Benefits, 7 E. Redwood Street, 20th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202 within 60 days of the qualified life event.
During the upcoming Open Enrollment period, retirees will be mailed a Baltimore City Retiree Health Benefits Enrollment Form and enrollment instructions. Open enrollment will take place in late October/early November. Look out for your packet in October.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the Office of Employee Benefits between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM at 410-396-5830 and select option 2 (City Retirees) or 3 (BCPSS Retirees) and then option 1 to speak to an Employee Benefits Specialist.
