An Audit Report on Health Plan Cost Containment Measures and Contract Management at the Employees Retirement System and the Teacher Retirement System
Description: Report of the Texas State Auditor's Office related to the measures that the Employees Retirement System (ERS) and the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) have implemented to reduce the amount the State pays for its health care plans. The report determines whether the cost-containment measures taken for the self-insured ERS and TRS health care plans are achieving intended results, whether ERS and TRS health care contracts are properly administered to ensure that the State receives health care services at the lowest cost, and identifies additional cost-containment measures (including new plan designs) used by other state health insurance plans that could be applicable to the ERS and TRS plans.
