How do you choose a health plan for your district? Talk to someone who knows school districts.

Selecting a health plan for your school district can be a challenging task. It's important to make a well-informed decision that meets the specific needs of your district and your employees. Health plans are all about people and that's something TASB Benefits Cooperative understands very well. 

We also understand school districts. We were created by Texas local governments exclusively to serve Texas local governments, so we understand the unique needs of school districts. With a wealth of experience and a commitment to providing friendly service, TASB Benefits Cooperative is here to support you in navigating the complex process of choosing a health plan so you can focus on serving the staff and students in your district. 

Do you know all your options?

There are different approaches to providing health insurance for employees. Self-funded plans involve more risk but can be tailored to an employer's specific needs. Fully funded plans transfer the risk to the insurance carrier, and premiums are generally fixed. Level-funded plans offer a middle ground, combining fixed premiums with the potential for cost savings and more customization. The choice between these plans depends on your risk tolerance, budget, and desired level of control.

So, which healthcare funding option is right for your district? There are several healthcare funding options now available in Texas, and depending on each district’s unique set of circumstances, those options will help determine which category is best suited for a given district. Get access to the whitepaper, “Exploring Funding Solutions for Texas School Districts' Healthcare Needs and Understanding the Self-Funding Approach” for information to help you make this important decision.

Making your healthcare plan choice simple and affordable.

Dozens of school districts have already made the choice to switch healthcare plans after a change in state law in 2021 that allows school districts to opt out of the state health plan. But how do you know which plan is right for your district? TASB Benefits Cooperative can help you figure out the best solution for your school district’s unique healthcare needs.
