TRS-ActiveCare Introduction

TRS-ActiveCare Introduction

On September 1, 2002, TRS introduced TRS-ActiveCare, a new statewide health coverage program for public education employees established by the 77 the Texas Legislature. Today, participation in that program has grown to over 477,000 employees and dependents. Of the 1,246 districts/entities eligible to participate in TRS-ActiveCare, over 90 percent, or 1,127 now do so.

Along with the three PPO plan options administered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and Express Scripts, there are three health maintenance organization (HMO) options offered under TRS-ActiveCare for the 2013-2014 plan year: FirstCare Health Plans, Scott & White Health Plan, and Valley Baptist Health Plans. These HMO options will provide additional plan choices to the employees of participating entities in areas served by these HMOs. These employees will be able to select TRS-ActiveCare coverage under one of the PPO plans or through the authorized HMO serving their part of the state.

Accessible, affordable, and quality health care has become increasingly important to all of us, and we at TRS are committed to providing that for you using all available resources. We hope that you’ll take a few minutes to read through this website to learn more about your many TRS-ActiveCare benefits.
