Find a network health care provider in your insurance plan

For HealthSelect network providers, go to https://healthselect.bcbstx.com/. For dental providers, you can visit the ERS Delta Dental plan home page

For routine services, such as annual eye exams or well-women exams, no referrals are needed. All other specialist visits require a referral from your PCP in order to receive network benefits.


Designate and/or Change your Primary Care Physician (PCP)

To designate your Primary Care Physician (PCP) for your health plan for the first time, call (800) 252 - 8039. A PCP can be designated over the phone and will be effective the same day. Confirm the effective date of the change.  You will then receive a new card in the mail if your change is to be effective for long-term to your home address.  The card should arrive in about 10 business days.


Make changes to your insurance

  • During Annual Enrollment: Start at the ERS website http://www.ers.texas.gov to get to ERS OnLine.  Click on the "My Account" button, and then request a new password, if applicable. You need this password to make changes online.  Annual Enrollment changes must be entered in ERS OnLine during the specified Annual Enrollment period.

Please note: Some coverage changes require approval through the evidence of insurability or EOI process, even during Annual Enrollment.

 


Apply for coverage through the EOI process

Evidence of insurability (EOI) is an application process in which you provide medical information regarding the condition of your health.  EOI may be required to enroll in, add dependents to or increase some insurance coverages.

    EOI is required when:

  • You enroll in Optional Term Life Elections 3 and 4 at any time;
  • You enroll in Optional Term Life Elections 1 and 2 after your first 30 days of employment;
  • You enroll in the Disability Income Protection Plan (either short- or long-term) after your first 30 days of employment;
  • You enroll in or add dependents to Dependent Term Life after your first 30 days of employment, or after your dependent's first 30 days as an eligible dependent.

    EOI is not required when:

  • You enroll in Optional Term Life Elections 1 and 2 during your first 30 days of employment;
  • You enroll in Disability Income coverage during your first 30 days;
  • You enroll in or add dependents to Dependent Term Life during your first 30 days or during your dependent's first 30 days as an eligible dependent;
  • You enroll in or increase your Voluntary Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage.

Securian Life

The EOI application requests information about you and/or your dependent's health.  

  • Securian Life may ask you to have a medical examination and/or request your medical records as part of the review process.

For information on the status of your application, call Securian Life Insurance at 877-494-1716. 

You will either be approved or denied based on the medical information provided by you and/or your doctor.  You will receive an approval or denial letter.  To add coverage that is approved, notify Human Resources by providing a copy of the approval letter.  Approved coverage will be effective the first of the month following the date of your approval.
