AISD Partners with Aetna for Health Care Benefits

After an extensive search and assessment process, Austin ISD has selected Aetna to provide district staff members with a variety of cost-effective health insurance plan options. 

Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, Aetna will replace our longtime partner, BlueCross BlueShield of Texas. The following aspects were significant in guiding our evaluation and selection process:

  • Innovation
  • A variety of plan choices
  • Seamless integration of services—medical, pharmacy and disability
  • Reduced premium options both for employees and for those with dependents

We will now be offering four health plans. The Aetna Platinum Choice and Gold Choice options are PPO plans with in-network and out-of-network choices. The Gold Seton Select and HSA Seton Select plans are a new and innovative concept for AISD aimed at providing all employees with affordable health care options.
