Medical Insurance


VCERA does not administer retiree health benefits and thus cannot answer questions about such plans. For information on your eligibility in the County’s medical, dental and vision care plans, contact the Ventura County Human Resources Department at (805) 662-6791.

If you are covered by the following unions or agency, contact them about your eligibility for medical coverage and other benefits:

  • Ventura County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association: (805) 639-9218
  • Ventura County Firefighters’ Association: (805) 484-8844
  • Ventura Regional Sanitation District: (805) 658-4645

Retirees may also participate in a statewide vision care insurance program by Vision Service Plan (VSP). This program was initially sponsored by the State Association of County Retirement Systems and is now operated independently by VSP. For more information, contact VSP at (800) 400-4569.

The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) offers a comprehensive long-term care insurance program. Please contact CalPERS at (888) 225-7377 or visit for more information.
