Summer Enrollment is the one time of year when you can make benefits changes without having a qualifying life event.
Get ready for Plan Year 2020, which starts September 1, 2019 by reviewing your health plan and the following optional benefits.
- Dental insurance. During your Summer Enrollment phase, you can enroll in the State of Texas Dental Choice Plan preferred provider organization (PPO) or the DeltaCare USA dental health maintenance organization (DHMO).
- Vision insurance. If you have an eye disease or injury, your health plans covers diagnosis and treatment. Some health plans cover an annual vision exam and offer discounts on glasses or contacts. If you enroll in State of Texas Vision, you can save money on eye exams and eyewear for you and your dependents. See State of Texas Vision webpage for Active Employees.
- The Texas Income Protection Plan (TIPP). Short-term and long-term disability insurance can help you make ends meet if you can’t work because of an illness or injury. Disability coverage also helps you pay the bills if you can't work because of pregnancy complications or recovery from childbirth. If you elect short-term disability coverage, you can get up to 66% of your paycheck for up to five months. Long-term disability coverage allows you to receive up to 60% of your paycheck until you are able to return to work or reach the Maximum Benefit Period, which is based on the age when you become disabled. See this list of Frequently Asked Questions, compiled by ReedGroup, the third-party administrator for TIPP.
