Important Things to Know for 2018-2019


• Wichita Falls ISD Cafeteria Plan year runs from September 1st through August 31st each year. TASC Flex Systems is our Third Party Administrator (TPA) for the flex spending accounts. TASC provides a debit Mastercard for the Medical Reimbursement account that can be used at doctor’s offices and pharmacies. This card eliminates the need to file paper reimbursement request, but you must still maintain your receipts as required by the IRS.

• We will automatically pre-tax all your health insurance premiums with the exception of the disability insurance and life insurance policies. If you do not want your premiums pre-taxed contact the Insurance Office during open enrollment. Remember once the plan year starts you cannot make any changes to your coverage unless it's due to a Change of Family Status (COFS) event. The COFS events are due to marriage, divorce, medicaid/medicare eligibility, birth/adoption of a child and involuntary loss of other coverage. A voluntary change in jobs does not qualify as a COFS event. You have 31 days from the event date to make any changes. Please login to the enrollment site and complete a COFS Request Form with supporting documents and forward to the Insurance Office at the Ed. Center.

Very Important: TRS has mandated that every employee who covers a dependent on the medical health insurance to have their date of birth and social security number listed in the system on each one. Please make sure that on the “Verify Information” page to list your e-mail and all required information on each dependent.
