The Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) has received several phone calls and messages this morning after an email was sent out last night regarding TRS-Care.
Specifically, members have been calling to request more information about TRS-Care insurance cards for the coming plan year, which begins on January 1, 2018.
The information that was reported last night stated that participants “auto-enrolled in the TRS-Care plans should have already received their insurance cards in the mail.”
While some participants already have received their insurance cards, many others have not. Some participants have received prescription cards, but not their medical insurance cards.
Please know that the insurance cards are in the process of being mailed. All plan participants should receive their new cards from Humana (for Medicare Advantage) and Aetna (for participants under age 65 in the high-deductible plan) by the end of the month.
