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.
