We’ve made it easy for you to enroll in a Medicare plan

It’s the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) for Medicare. You’re hearing a lot about what to do. And that can be confusing. TRTA and Aetna want to help. So we’ve made it easy with a suite of products for TRTA members.
We’ve also created an exchange where you can go for more information. Here’s what you need to know:
• You can view the Aetna /TRTA offering online at
• This offering is for TRTA members only. If you need to check or update your membership, just call TRTA at 1-844-302-5383.
• You can call 1-888-299-0919 (TTY: 711), 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time, Monday to Friday, to speak to a licensed sales agent. They can guide you through your choices between the TRS plan and an Aetna plan.
• If you opt out of the TRS retiree benefits, you’ll need to let TRS know. To do that, just call 1-888-237-6762.
The TRS-Care Program is designed for retired Texas public school employees. It’s separate from both the TRS Pension Trust Fund and from any program providing health care benefits to actively employed public school employees. You should carefully weigh any decision regarding your health benefits. When you decide, please let TRS know. If you leave TRS-Care, you can’t re-enter the program unless you have a special enrollment event. Those events are rare.
