Preparing for the unexpected

Have you ever thought about who would get your benefits through Texas Health in the event the unthinkable happens? Your death or the death of a family member is not an easy topic to think about, but take a few minutes now to add/review beneficiaries for your benefits to be sure they go where you want. We’ve made this list of benefits to review to help you.

NOTE: Even if you chose not to elect additional coverage on these benefits, you get Basic coverage through Texas Health because you are a benefits eligible employee. This means you need to at least take action on these two benefits.
