Health Insurance

  • BISD offers health and supplemental benefits to employees who work 30 hours or more, accessible through TRS-ActiveCare Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX).  Plan details are accessible through the BISD Employee Benefits Portal.  BISD contributes $250 towards each TRS-ActiveCare premium.

    A district substitute and temporary/part-time employee can enroll in TRS-ActiveCare if the district reasonably anticipates that the employee will work at least 10 hours per week.

     

New BISD Employees

  • New employees are required to log in to the Employee Benefits Portal within 31 days of their start date to either elect or decline each offered benefit.

    New employees completing benefits enrollment for the first time have the opportunity to elect guaranteed issue coverage of Voluntary Life and AD&D insurance for themselves and their dependents, without evidence of insurability (no health questions or forms to complete). Please note: If you decline this coverage in year one, you will need to provide evidence of insurability if you enroll in future years. 

    All BISD employees are provided, at no cost to you, UNUM Basic Life Insurance with an included Employee Assistance Program (EAP).  It is VITAL that you include your beneficiaries at the end of your enrollment, regardless of whether you elect or decline the offered benefits. This ensures that they will be added as beneficiaries of the UNUM Basic Life Insurance.

    For assistance with benefits enrollment or logging into the Employee Benefits Portal, contact the Benefits Department at 817-245-1007.
