TASB Partners With TML To Capture School Business

Amazing things happen when vendors compete for business. With the passage of SB1444 by the Texas legislature this past session, TRS ActiveCare member districts are allowed, for the first time in 20 years, to exit the program and seek competitive alternatives in the commercial market.

For the first time in 20 years the TRS ActiveCare government health plan must compete for business. And they are. The TRS ActiveCare 2023 renewal is out. No member district will pay more and some will pay less.

Numerous insurance marketers are now active in soliciting school district business. Competition is good.

From TASB website:

The TASB / TML health insurance program gives Texas school districts the power to join forces — combining, or pooling, their purchasing power — by participating in TML Health’s existing self-funded risk pool along with more than 900 other Texas local government entities and over 35,000 employees and dependents.

By pooling, Texas school districts and other local governments can negotiate the best value for all their health plan members. The self-funded risk pool design also helps stabilize rates and potentially saves money for members.

Members can count on a guaranteed rate and a promise that when the pool has a good year, those rewards are shared with you through renewal credits. The longer you’re a member of the pool, the greater your opportunity for rewards.
