2023 Benefits Enrollment
Who: Benefits Eligible employees (as defined above)
What: Enrollment in 2023 benefits through Texas Health
When: Nov. 1 through Nov. 15
Where: You’ll enroll in your benefits through Texas Health’s employee portal, www.MyTHR.org. Step-by-step instructions can be found here.
Why: 2023 Benefits Enrollment is your opportunity to enroll in Texas Health benefits for coverage effective Jan. 1, 2023.
If you do not submit your 2023 Benefits Enrollment during these dates, your current benefits will end Dec. 31, 2022. Your next opportunity to enroll would be if you have a qualified status change, life or job event during the 2023 benefits plan year or during the next annual enrollment period for coverage in 2024.
*as defined in the HR/Payroll system
Texas Health requires employees to submit documentation verifying their dependents are eligible for coverage. If you add a dependent to Medical, Dental or Vision benefits for 2023, you’ll be required to submit dependent verification by Nov. 30. You can learn more about who can be covered and what documentation is required here.
If you have the documentation for your dependents ready, you can send it to the benefits department anytime between now and Nov. 30. Just fill out this form and email it to THRBenefitsSupport@texashealth.org along with your documentation. We will verify your family members early, so all you’ll need to do is add them to your benefits while enrolling Nov. 1 – Nov. 15.
IMPORTANT: If your documentation is not received prior to the Nov. 30 deadline, your dependents will not have coverage through Texas Health in 2023.
Benefits at the Jan. 1, 2023 Transition
Paid Time Off (PTO)
Texas Health’s PTO program has a maximum banked accrual limit of 300 hours. To help employees not lose the value of their current hours when transitioning to Texas Health’s PTO program, anyone with more than 250 hours in their bank in the pay period ending 12/3/2022 will receive a 100% payout of the value of the hours over 250 on their Dec. 9 paycheck. The hours remaining in your bank after the payout will transition to Texas Health’s PTO bank for your use after the transition.
On Jan. 1, you’ll be able to enroll in the Texas Health 401(k) Retirement plan. Your current 401(k) plan will be frozen, your funds will remain invested as we work on the transition process to incorporate your current plan into the Texas Health Frozen Prior Employer 401(k) Plan.
If you have a loan taken out against your current 401(k), we are working on a process for you to continue to have paycheck deductions taken out of your Texas Health paycheck to pay down your loan. We do not anticipate that you will need to take action for this to happen, and we will be in touch as the approvals and processes are finalized.
