San Benito ISD Considers Joining TRS ActiveCare


San Benito CISD Board Meeting 3-10-15  See 1:39 – 1:43 – this four minute segment gives the viewer a snapshot of San Benito’s self-insured medical funding problem.

The district’s funding is insufficient to carry the risk and will cause a multi-million dollar deficit this plan year. The TRS ActiveCare “safe harbor” may be one possible solution. The other alternative is to re-visit the self-funded plan for alternatives such as reference based pricing and cost plus reimbursement strategies. Two nearby school districts have adopted these strategies with success.
