Open enrollment for Katy ISD benefits is October 28 – November 11, and there have been changes you will want to know about. Take a careful look at each plan to see which might be best for you.
Thanks to your feedback, we have introduced three new plans for you to choose from this year, designed to make it easier to get the care you need.
We are introducing a new consumer-driven health plan. If you’re looking for lower premiums, the High Deductible Health Plan could be a great choice for you. It allows you to sign up for a new Health Savings Account to help you manage what you pay.
Any employee enrolled in the High Deductible Health Plan will be eligible to sign up for a Health Savings Account (HSA). You’ll be able to deposit money to this HSA right from your paycheck – meaning no hassle and no taxes paid on these deposits. You can use your funds to save on out-of0pocket medical expenses, such as your deductible, co-payments or vision and dental care bills.
The Memorial Hermann ACO will allow you to see any doctor in the Memorial Hermann network. This network is made up of ONLY Memorial Hermann doctors and facilities.
The Choice POS II plan offers a broad network. If you love your doctors but can only find coverage for them in this network, this is the plan for you.
During open enrollment, any eligible employees can enroll in supplemental life insurance for up to $300,000 with no medical questions asked. And Spouse life coverage will now continue beyond age 65.
You can now contribute up to $2,750 to your Flexible Spending Account (FSA).

What’s staying the same
Although the plans have changed, we are still partnering with Aetna to provide your medical benefits.
RediMD is free and remains ready to help make it easy to see a doctor. Anyone enrolled in a Katy ISD medical plan can see a doctor anytime, anywhere, and it won’t even cost you a copay. Sign up for RediMD and get the care you need, when you need it.
The EAP continues to be here for you. This has been a challenging year, and if you’re facing stress, depression or hardship, the EAP can be a great first step in feeling better.
You can also still contact the 24-hour Nurse Line for free help making smart health care decisions, like when to head to an ER, and when to choose an Urgent Care or RediMD appointment.
You can still enroll online or by phone. And you will still need to provide tax ID numbers for all of your dependents when enrolling.
If you ever have any questions about enrollment or benefits, you can call Benefits Outlook at 866-222-KISD (5473) for help.
