Health and Dental Coverage

What if I have questions regarding health/dental coverage?

TRS does not administer health or dental care benefits for retirees or determine your eligibility to participate in a health or dental plan during your retirement. TRS does not provide information regarding the filing of claims. Retirees should direct all questions regarding health and dental insurance to their health or dental plan provider.

For retirees eligible to participate in Georgia's State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP), TRS will deduct the monthly premium from your benefit payment, once your enrollment form is approved by the SHBP. TRS does not determine your eligibility for participation in the SHBP and does not provide information on the filing of claims.

Specific health plan questions should be addressed to the State Health Benefit Plan -- 800-610-1863. You also may visit the Department of Community Health web site for more information.
