Del Valle ISD’s health insurance plan is through the Teachers Retirement System of Texas (TRS Active-Care). TRS Active-Care is administered by Aetna.

When you are eligible

You are eligible for coverage if you are an active employee and working 20 hours or more per week and are actively contributing to the Teachers Retirement System of Texas.

You have 31 days from your actively at work date (start date) to complete your paperwork and submit to the Benefits Coordinator. Participation in the health-care benefits will be effective on either (1) employee’s first active day of employment (physical start date) or (2) the first of the month following the first active day of employment (physical start date).

Should a new employee choose not to enroll within the initial 31 day sign-up, the next opportunity for enrollment will be during the next Annual Enrollment. (Certain special events such as a change in marital status, dependent status or employment status of an employee or spouse, may qualify for an exception to this rule. Contact the Benefits coordinator within 31 days of the qualifying event for further clarification.)
