TRS Hospital Claim Analysis as Required by House Bill


Through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX), the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) provides affordable comprehensive medical coverage to school district employees and retirees across the state of Texas.

During the 88th session, the Texas legislature passed the General Appropriations Act (House Bill 1) which included a rider directing TRS to complete a review of hospital claims that exceeded $100,000 during the 2022 state fiscal year (September 1, 2021 – August 31, 2022).

You may receive a formal medical records request from BCBSTX, on behalf of TRS, requesting medical and billing records for identified claims. As a state agency providing services to Texas school districts, their employees, retirees, and dependents, TRS appreciates your cooperation in providing comprehensive and affordable healthcare services to school districts and their retirees across Texas.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) at 800-451-0287, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Central Time, Monday through Friday.
