Useful Information about Your TSHBP Health Benefits

Here are a few tips to better understand your new TSHBP benefits.

What is the difference between TSHBP, 90 Degree Benefits, and HealthSmart?

  • TSHBP, otherwise known as the Texas Schools Health Benefits Program, is your new medical option offered as an alternative to the TRS-ActiveCare program. This program has two plans: the TSHBP Copay Plan and the TSHBP High Deductible Plan.
  • 90 Degree Benefits administers the TSHB Program much like BCBSTX administers the TRS-ActiveCare program. 90DB provides customer service for your TSHBP benefits, process claims, and provides concierge service through Care Coordinators to manage all your hospital and facility services.
  • HealthSmart Physician & Ancillary is the name of the provider network for services under the TSHBP.
