2020 Summer Enrollment
Welcome to Plan Year 2021
During your enrollment period, you, as an active employee or retiree not eligible for Medicare, have an opportunity to enroll in new benefits programs or change current coverage for yourself and your eligible dependents. Any changes you make go into effect September 1, 2020.
If you don’t want to make changes to your medical benefits, you do not need to do anything. Your current HealthSelect coverage will continue. Summer Enrollment is your only chance to make benefits changes unless you have a qualifying life event. Medicare-eligible retirees will have the opportunity to make plan changes in the fall.
The 2021 health plan year begins on September 1, 2020, and runs through August 31, 2021.
Upcoming Live Webinars
The Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS) wants to ensure the safety of all employees, retirees, program administrators and staff during the global pandemic. As a result, beginning Monday, June 22, ERS and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas will host a series of live Summer Enrollment webinars instead of in-person Summer Enrollment fairs.
