Retired teachers are on TRS Care.
These two links are what was passed by the regular session of the legislature in May and the plan that TRS plans to put into place January 1, 2018. Our current insurance and deductible will continue from September 1st thru January instead of starting over September 1 like in the past. Beginning January 2018 retired teacher TRS insurance will be on calendar year instead of the school year.
However, during the special session the house and senate are haggling over another fix for retired teachers insurance. Depending on what they do in the next few days everything could change.

: I just got off the phone with a TRS rep.
: single TRS health coverage (I am retired)
: will be $200 a month BUT (and this is a big
: butt), the deductible is $6000. For myself
: and my wife (who did not retire using TRS),
: the rate is $739 (or close to that)a month
: with a GET THIS: $13,000 (yes, that is a
: thirteen with three zero’s) deductible. The
: rep told me they went into the red last
: year, the “state” bailed them out, and to
: avoid going into the red again, these are
: the new rates (at least for retired
: teachers). I don’t know what kind of
: horrible news is in store for those still
: slaving away in the classroom.
: If TRS were entered in a band contest, they
: would receive a RTR---refuse to rate!!!
