Health Insurance

Brownsville ISD offers group three health insurance coverage to all full-time employees. There are three plans available: Plan A, Plan B and Plan C.

The health insurance plan year is from October 1 through September 30th of each year. New employees must complete enrollment forms within the first 31 days of employment. Current employees can make changes in their insurance coverage during the annual open enrollment which normally takes place in August through mid-September. If you are a current employee you can generally only enroll during the Open Enrollment period OR within the first 31 days of the qualifying event (birth, marriage, adoption, death, divorce, etc.). Dependent children are covered up to the age of 26.

To qualify for the two employee rate, both employees must meet the definition of Spouse or Domestic Partner. If your status changes whereby you do not qualify for the two employee rate, you are responsible to notify the Employee Benefits Department.
