  • HealthSelect of Texas (Out-of-Area)

    HealthSelect out-of-area health insurance coverage is for you and your family members 
    who live or work outside of the State of Texas and/or retirees eligible for Medicare.
    If you don't fall into these situations, you need to review the in-area information.

    HealthSelect coverage includes a comprehensive Prescription Drug Program.

    UnitedHealthcare administers HealthSelect medical coverage.
