Ask ALEX Insurance Tool

ALEX is an online tool employees can use to learn more about TRS-ActiveCare plan options available to them. ALEX collects some simple information and walks you through benefits, features and costs – without all the insurance jargon.

ALEX can:

  • Help you understand and compare plan options
  • Explain health benefits terms
  • Show you how different plan features work – deductibles, coinsurance, out-of-pocket maximums
  • Walk you through estimating tax savings with a health savings account (if you are considering the ActiveCare 1-HD plan)

ALEX will summarize his recommendations on your own personal benefits web page. Just click the link to restart the conversation any time.
