With the new insurance year beginning January 1, 2019, retired members need to become familiar with the changes to our health insurance. There will be changes in TRS Care premiums, our insurance carrier, benefits and prescription drug prices. Several members attended the special session this summer and addressed the legislative committees asking that they change the premiums and benefits to make rates more affordable. They were told changes were necessary in order to keep the insurance sound. To find all of the changes, and to see what the premiums will be for your particular level of insurance, you can find detailed information by following the link above.
