Benefits and Risk Management

Benefit Plans

Waco ISD administers all employee insurance benefits and protects the confidentiality of all employee personal health information in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations and requirements. The Human Resources Benefits Office is available to assist employees with issues that cannot be resolved by accessing online information or direct customer support provided by benefit providers.

Employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week (and are members of the Teacher Retirement System of Texas) are eligible for group health insurance coverage, effective the first day of the month following their date of hire.

The health insurance plan year is from January 1st through December 31st. New employees must complete enrollment forms within the first 31 days of employment.

Current employees can make changes in their insurance coverage during the open enrollment period only, or whenever a qualifying event occurs which may necessitate changes (i.e., divorce, marriage, birth, death, loss of coverage, etc.). The employee will be required to complete additional paperwork within 30 days if a change in coverage is desired. Changes will not be allowed if a request to add or delete coverage is not made timely.

At their own expense, employees may enroll in supplemental insurance programs through the district's Third Party Administrator, First Financial. Premiums for these programs are paid through payroll deduction.
