Open Enrollment 2020-21

  • Open Enrollment Window
    July 15-August 12

     

    This year Beaumont ISD is proud to offer two insurance plans. You will now have the option to choose the TRS plan or the Texas Schools Health Benefits Program (TSHBP). This new option will give you nationwide coverage and is "co-pay only" (as long as you stay within network).

    Example:

    Cost to an employee who has an overnight stay at the hospital for surgery

    TRS Active Care:

    Surgery Total Cost  =  $10,000

    Deductible  $1,200 plus 20% Co-insurance = $1760

    Total Paid by BISD Employee = $2960

     

    TSHBP Plan:

    Surgery Total Cost  =  $10,000

    Deductible  $500  (no coinsurance at any time)

    Total Paid by BISD Employee = $500

     

    We are urging all employees to take the time to use one of the methods posted below to educate themselves on how the medical plans are going to work this year. We cannot stress enough that the TRS plans now act like an HMO and employees can only make an appointment with a specialist if their primary care provider (which you will be required to elect) approves it. Please see the information below to make an informed decision.
