PLAN UPDATES THIS YEAR:
- Aetna increased their premium rates for all 3 plans for the 2017-2018 plan year.
- Out of Pocket (OOP) maximums increased for the ActiveCare Select and ActiveCare 2 plans.
- Emergency room copays on the ActiveCare Select and ActiveCare 2 have also increased.
- As a reminder, if you enroll in an ActiveCare Select or ActiveCare 2, you are not eligible for the Health Savings Account. You must DECLINE coverage when completing the enrollment through PlanSource.
- You have a higher probability of receiving your medical ID cards if you complete your enrollment by August 10, 2017. As a reminder, ID cards will only be issued if you make a plan change, otherwise you may use the existing card you have even if you add dependents.
It is important to us that you know the benefits options available to you. Our medical plan is offered through TRS ActiveCare and it is administered by Aetna. Use the resources below to assist you in making your medical elections for the 2017-2018 plan year.
Aetna offer three plan options:
If ActiveCare 1-HD is your plan of choice just remember everything is subject to your deductible. This means doctor’s visits, prescription drugs, hospital stays, surgeries, lab work, and outpatient procedures. It is important to be a wise consumer when on this plan. This is why YES Prep provides each person on the 1HD plan $50 per month in a Health Savings Account. If you don’t remember how your Health Savings Account works or you would like to learn more, please visit the Health Savings Account page.
If you are interested in the ActiveCare Select Plan, remember that you have a limited network based on where you live. If you live in Fort Bend, Harris or Montgomery county, review the Aetna Memorial Hermann Network Map and the Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Network Map because you MUST stay in-network for this plan to benefit you. If you live outside of these counties or want to learn more about this plan, click here. ActiveCare Select also has its own Customer Service support team that you can contact at 713-222-2273 (CARE).
ActiveCare 2 is very similar to the Select Plan minus the restricted network. The deductible is lower and the specialist copay is lower outside of that the plans are very similar when it comes to plan features. ActiveCare 2 is very conservative and with you having an Open Access Network your premium is going to be higher.
