Welcome to the Wichita Falls School District Benefits Portal!
Welcome to the Wichita Falls ISD Benefits Center. In today’s busy life style it can get complicated making sure you are fully protecting your family and assets. The Affordable Care Act requires individuals to maintain minimum health insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents. This mandate is not considered a qualifying event for you to add coverage mid-year. Every employee must log in and either elect or decline coverage. Please use the navigation links to the left of this screen to view each plan summary and helpful information.

Important Things to Know for 2020-2021
- 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 card for the Medical Reimbursement account that can be used at doctor’s offices and pharmacies. They also have a smart phone app that can be used as well. Make sure you retain all receipts for IRS tax auditing purposes.
- We will automatically pre-tax all your eligible health insurance premiums as allowed by the Cafeteria Plan. Remember once the plan year starts you cannot make any changes to your coverage mid-year unless it’s due to a Qualified Life Event (QLE). The QLE’s are due to marriage, divorce, medicaid/medicare eligibility, birth/adoption of a child and involuntary loss of other coverage. You have 31 days from the event date to make any changes. Please login to the enrollment site and complete a QLE Request Form with supporting documents and forward to the Insurance Office at the Ed. Center.
- Very Important: TRS has changed the Medical carrier to BCBS for the 2020-2021 plan year. Pleas look over plan summaries as the plans have changed and some will require a PCP to enroll. TRS has also mandated that every employee who covers a dependent (including spouse) 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 “Personal Information” page to list your e-mail and all required information on each dependent.
