Watch for letter with annual benefits enrollment information

Annual enrollment for HealthSelect of Texas, the plan administered by United Healthcare for ERS, will be July 10-24.

Enrolled members will receive a letter via the U.S. Postal Service from the Employee Retirement System of Texas (ERS) in late June or early July with an explanation of existing benefits and enrollment instructions. United Healthcare provides ERS-administered health insurance to our system.

Find more information about eligibility for insurance benefits include medical, dental, prescription drugs, optional term life insurance, short term disability and long term disability, accidental death and dismemberment and dependent term life.

Long-term care insurance is available through CNA national insurance, rather than ERS. Long term care insurance helps benefits-eligible participants provide for assistance when a serious illness or disability renders them unable, physically or cognitively, to care for themselves for a lengthy period of time.

Long term care insurance is available to benefits-eligible employees, spouses, parents, parents-in-law, grandparents, or grandparents-in-law. Employees may enroll at any time and premiums for employee and spouse may be paid through payroll deduction. All others must be invoiced separately.
