Choosing a Medicare plan can be overwhelming. There are so many options it can be hard to compare between the different plans. The Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) has a new video that makes the differences between the TRS-Care Medicare Advantage plan and others on the Medicare marketplace easy to understand. 

Don’t forget: The most important aspect to consider when evaluating your health insurance options are your needs both now and in the future. And while a monthly premium is a major factor for those needs, it’s only one piece of the puzzle.

Pay attention to these costs below, which are just as important as premiums when it comes to looking at health care coverage:

  • Annual deductible 
  • Coinsurance
  • Copays 
  • Maximum out-of-pocket 
  • Hospital stay costs 

TRS also has new webinars called TRS-Care Medicare & You. Co-hosted by UnitedHealthcare and SilverScript, this is where educators can learn about the enrollment process and benefits available to you through TRS. There are spots available for the Friday, May 7, session from 1–3:30 p.m. CT. Register here!
