2018 Employee Benefits Information


2017 FSA Reminder - Opportunity to use your 2017 funds ends on March 15, 2018
 
Grace Period for Health Care Flexible Spending Account
Under Health Care Flexible Spending Account plan provisions, participants have up until March 15, 2018 to continue to incur medical expenses and use funds that they have not exhausted from their 2017 account.  For example, you can go to the dentist in February of 2018 to get a root canal and use money from your 2017 account to pay for this expense.  To see information about your Flexible Spending Account, including account balances, log onto www.discoverybenefits.com or call Discovery Benefits at 866-451-3399. The grace period described above does not apply to funds in the Dependent Care account.  
 
Submitting Receipts from Plan Year 2017    
The plan, in accordance with IRS regulations, allows you to continue to be reimbursed into 2018 for money left in both your Dependent and Health Care Flexible Spending Accounts from 2017.  All submissions for reimbursement for the 2017 Dependent and Health Care Flexible Spending Accounts are due to Discovery Benefits no later than April 30, 2018. Any dollars left unclaimed in the 2017 Flexible Spending Accounts after the April 30th deadline will be forfeited.  
 
Important Reminder Regarding Submitting Documentation to Substantiate Flexible Spending Transactions
Please be advised that Flexible Spending Accounts are a pre-tax benefit,  Discovery Benefits is able to automatically approve some (but not all) debit card transactions according to IRS regulations.   If requested, you are REQUIRED to provide documentation to Discovery Benefits to validate debit card transactions. This ensures the debit card was used for IRS approved items/services within the allowed time frame.  Documentation should include the date of service, type of service and the final patient responsibility.  An Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from insurance is a great source of this information.  Failure to provide requested documentation will require the employee to repay any unsubstantiated funds to the plan on an after-tax basis.
