MyTRS—Employers can add or edit plan rates

The MTRS has reenabled the Add Rates and Edit Rates buttons on the Insurance Rates screen in MyTRS as we have implemented new validations to help prevent plan price changes from triggering billing errors. Thus, employers can now add plan rates or edit plan rates for their retirees for this season’s open enrollment in MyTRS. However, please do not make any changes until you have read the new instructions.

Important note: If you have a physical copy of our Retiree Insurance in MyTRS guide, it is out of date. Instead, please use the updated online Retiree Insurance in MyTRS guide, which has been completely rewritten and contains two additional chapters.
Please pay special attention to the changes in:
Chapter 2—Retiree Insurance Guidelines
Chapter 12—View Plan Rates
Chapter 13—Add / Edit Plan Rates
Chapter 14—Premium Rate Holidays

Updated videos and live session

In addition to the new online guide, we will soon be posting updated videos and host a live training session with Q&A. Please watch your inbox for details.

Insurance Carrier UniCare is changing names to Wellpoint

The Group Insurance Commission has announced that the Health Insurance Carrier UniCare is changing names to Wellpoint. The MTRS has begun the process of updating plans in MyTRS with the label “Unicare” to “Wellpoint” for open enrollment.

This change will not require new plans for FY2025, rather we are simply updating the plan labels. Employers will not need to change retiree plans individually.

If you have a retiree or survivor who is moving to a Wellpoint plan effective 07/01/2024, please migrate them to the current UniCare equivalent and their labels will update once the name change has been completed.

If you have any questions about this change, please get in touch with the GIC directly.
