TRS health care will cover COVID-19 vaccinations

The Teacher Retirement System of Texas is reminding members that its health plans will cover FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines at no cost. TRS will consider the vaccination as a part of preventive healthcare. TRS has also created a resource hub on its website regarding vaccine distribution.  

Information that is helpful to note: 

  • Texas is currently administering vaccines in Phase 1A and Phase 1B 
  • TRS-ActiveCare and TRS-Care Standard participants should bring both their Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and CVS Caremark ID cards to appointments. 
  • TRS-Care Medicare Advantage participants should bring their United Healthcare ID card to appointments. 
  • There is a limited supply of vaccines during the initial release. After you identify a local provider or clinic, be sure to call ahead and ask about availability.
