Summaries of Benefits and Coverage (SBCs) for health plans available starting in July

As required by the federal Affordable Care Act, ERS is making sure all members of the Texas Employees Group Benefits Program have access to new Summaries of Benefits and Coverage (SBCs) for HealthSelectSM of Texas, Community First Health Plans, and Scott & White Health Plan. Each SBC provides an overview of the benefits and services the health plan covers and what you can expect to pay for such services. They’re available in English and Spanish.

The SBCs will be online July 1, 2013. You can get them on the ERS website beginning July 1. You also can request hard copies directly from the health plans by calling the toll-free numbers below:
