TRS has announced a statewide increase in premiums and changes to some health care plans for the 2018-19 plan year.
Please take note that the ActiveCare Select plan is an HMO and is VERY restrictive with regard to in-network providers based on the geographic region in which you live. For example, this plan may NOT cover your dependent student who is attending school outside of your county. Please verify this information BEFORE selecting this plan.Also, it will only provide “emergency” coverage for you when traveling. Bottom line – please be very diligent in your decision before choosing this plan. Aetna has said there will be no exceptions to change from this plan without a qualifying event.
Information regarding this plan (and all other plans) can be found on the TRS website at www.trsactivecareaetna.com.
What is the deadline to enroll?
Open enrollment will be held from Sunday, July 1 through Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018.
Am I required to complete the enroll process even if I don’t want any of the coverage or need to make any changes to my existing coverage?
Yes. Due to requirements of the Affordable Care Act, all employees are required to complete the enrollment process – even if it is simply to “decline” coverage.
This year is a passive enrollment, which allows all coverage to rollover, with the exception of Flex Spending Accounts (FSA). If you are declining coverage, Federal Law requires that we have a documented record in In-Roll (online enrollment system) of your declination. Please see “How do I enroll?” below.
What benefits does this open enrollment include?
TRS ActiveCare (health/medical) and all voluntary supplemental benefits (e.g. dental, vision, life, disability, cancer, critical illness, flex spending accounts, health savings accounts, etc.).
What term or plan year does this open enrollment include?
This open enrollment will be for the coverage year Sept. 1, 2018 to Aug. 31, 2019.
Where can I get information about the TRS ActiveCare plans?
