On September 1, 2002, TRS introduced TRS-ActiveCare, a new statewide health coverage program for public education employees established by the 77th Texas Legislature. Today, participation in that program has grown to over 460,000 employees and dependents. Of the 1,245 districts/entities eligible to participate in TRS-ActiveCare, over 90 percent, or 1,122 now do so.

Along with the three TRS-ActiveCare plan options administered by Aetna and Caremark, there are three health maintenance organization (HMO) options offered under TRS-ActiveCare for the 2014-2015 plan year: FirstCare Health Plans, Scott & White Health Plan, and Allegian 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.

TRS-ActiveCare is a self-funded program, not an insured plan. Rates and benefits are not determined by the vendors administering the program. Rates and benefits are established by the TRS Trustees based on the claims experience of the plan.

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.
