Everything you need to learn about your options and build a benefits package that fits your budget and your life is presented here on this site.
How to get started
First, check the eligibility requirements to make sure you’re eligible. This page also explains how to verify dependents and how our plan meets the guidelines of the Affordable Care Act.
For a personal tour of your plan options, check out Ben 101. For a quick and easy way to see how your options add up, try our Price Your Plan tool. The Compare Your Options tool gives you side-by-side comparisons of some of the plan highlights and prices.
If you’re new to the district, wait for your email invitation to enroll. If you don’t receive an invitation within 15 working days of your first day at work, please call the HISD Benefits Service Center 877-780-HISD (4473).
Be sure to submit your benefit elections before the enrollment deadline or your benefits effective date, whichever comes first. Once you’re enrolled, or if you miss the deadline, you are not eligible to make changes to your benefits until the next annual enrollment period, unless you experience a qualified life event.
Note: Your benefits are effective the first of the month after a 30 day waiting period. For example, if you were hired on 08/14/2017, your benefits would be effective on 10/01/2017.
Check your confirmation statement, available online. If it’s incorrect, call the HISD Benefits Service Center immediately at 877-780-HISD (4473).
