The Texas Association of Counties Health & Employee Benefits Pool (TAC HEBP) is one of the oldest, largest and most successful public-sector benefit pools in the nation. The program enables counties and county-related entities to combine, or pool, their purchasing power, increasing contract control and decreasing costs.
The federal government has extended the COVID-19 public health emergency. TAC HEBP members, there will continue to be no member cost-sharing (copays, deductible or coinsurance) required for COVID-19 testing and testing-related services for as long as the Public Health Emergency Declaration is in effect.
For more than 35 years, TAC has furnished high-quality benefits to Pool member employees, retirees, officials and their dependents.
