Health insurance premiums in Texas Employees Group Benefits Program (GBP) health plans will increase September 1, 2016. Since the State pays 100% of monthly premiums for eligible full-time employees and retirees, the premium increases will directly affect employees who:
- cover dependents,
- don’t work full-time (at least 30 hours a week), and/or
- are not eligible for the 100% state premium contribution.
