When does enrollment begin?  When does it end?

Enrollment begins July 1 and ends August 22.

What if I do not plan to make changes to my health insurance?

If the employee does not plan to make any changes, there will be no need to meet with a representative to make any changes.  The employee’s benefits will carry over automatically. 

What about my current medical ID card?

A replacement card will not be sent to the employee if they are not making changes. The employee will continue to utilize their current medical ID card.  If the employee has not received a medical ID card, they may contact TRS-ActiveCare customer service at 800-222-9205 for a new/replacement card.

Will I need to add dependents even if I am only enrolling myself?

Yes, it is required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to enter the names of the employee’s dependents through the online system.

Are there services or tools that provide a better understanding of the health plan I am interested in selecting?

Yes, there is a new tool employees can utilize: ALEX is an online tool you can use to learn more about TRS-ActiveCare plan options available to you as you determine the plan best for you and your family. ALEX collects some simple information and walks you through benefits at www.myalex.com/trsactivecare.  Further information on the 2017-2018 Enrollment Guide attached.

How do I enroll if I am making changes to my health plan?

What if I recently moved, and don’t know if my new information is updated?

Employees are able to log into FFEnroll and review all their personal information.  When updating information in FFEnroll, please make sure the address is also updated in Skyward.

What if my spouse and I both work for the same district or another district participating in TRS-ActiveCare?

Married employees who are active contributing TRS members may “pool” their local district and state funding to use toward the cost of TRS-ActiveCare coverage. 

Pooling

If an employee and spouse both work for the same participating district, funds may be pooled. 

·         One employee selects employee and spouse coverage, and the spouse declines coverage; or

·         One employee selects employee and family coverage, and the spouse declines coverage.

Split

If an employee and spouse work for different participating districts/entities, they may wish to pool funds.  The decision to enter into a split premium arrangement must be made during the annual enrollment or within the election period of a special enrollment event.

·         One employee selects employee and spouse coverage, and the spouse declines coverage, or

·         One employee selects employee and family coverage, and the spouse declines coverage.

Please see Benefits Coordinator (Benefits@ManorISD.net) for further information.

What if I have not received my new medical ID card by September 1?

If you have not received the medical ID card you are able to use a temporary Medical ID card.  Employees can either register online using Aetna Navigator at www.trsactivecareaetna.com or download the app in order to obtain a temporary medical ID card.  When your profile is created after registering using Aetna Navigator, you will be able to view your claim history and other information.
