As a result of recent legislation passed by the 85th Texas Legislature, beginning Jan. 1, 2018, TRS-Care will offer a single TRS-Care Medicare Advantage plan. The plan will be available to Medicare-eligible retirees and their Medicare-eligible dependents, and is similar to the current TRS-Care Medicare Advantage 2 plan.
Participants with Medicare will still have access to a Medicare prescription drug plan — an option similar to the current level 2 Medicare prescription drug plan through TRS-Care. In addition, beginning Jan. 1, 2018, SilverScript, an affiliate of CVS Caremark will begin administering the prescription drug plan.
What’s not changing is your access to a broad choice of quality doctors across the state. Unlike many Medicare Advantage plans, TRS-Care Medicare Advantage allows you to go to any doctor you choose, as long as they accept Medicare and agree to bill Humana.
Preventive care benefits are still covered at 100%.

In most cases, you must also purchase and maintain Medicare Part B in order to have benefits through TRS-Care.
