The Texas Schools Health Benefits Program is a regionally rated program developed for Texas school districts. Our purpose is to support the school children of Texas. We do this by providing health benefit solutions to our dedicated teachers, administrators, and support staff so they can concentrate on what they do best – teaching and supporting our kids. It is our desire to increase member health and well-being and provide tools necessary to identify and manage the health of each and every member.
The Program’s reimbursement model is combined with the rapidly emerging concierge care model being utilized with large employers across the country as a way to enhance member experience by supporting them as they use the complicated healthcare delivery system. The TSHBP plan reflects the current industry trend towards updated plan designs focused on helping members find high-quality fairly priced healthcare. The results of this concierge consumerism are overall lowered healthcare costs which are then passed on to the membership in the form of lower contributions, lower co-pays, and increased benefits.
The TSHBP is proud to offer a variety of plans and benefits to meet school district needs. Plans for 2023-24 include our Directed Care Plans and our Aetna PPO Plans. Both plans are designed so members can easily navigate through their health medical needs.
TSHBP plans are available for school district employees who are employed by participating districts and are active, contributing TRS members.
