SUMMARY PAGES

Section 125 Cafeteria Plan Guidelines A Cafeteria plan enables you to save money by using pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible group insurance premiums sponsored and offered by your employer. Enrollment is automatic unless you decline this benefit. Elections made during annual enrollment will become effective on the plan effective date and will remain in effect during the entire plan year. CHANGES IN STATUS (CIS):

Changes in benefit elections can occur only if you experience a qualifying event. You must present proof of a qualifying event to your Benefit Office within 30 days of your qualifying event and meet with your Benefit/HR Office to complete and sign the necessary paperwork in order to make a benefit election change. Benefit changes must be consistent with the qualifying event. QUALIFYING EVENTS

Marital Status

A change in marital status includes marriage, death of a spouse, divorce or annulment (legal separation is not recognized in all states).

Change in Number of Tax Dependents

A change in number of dependents includes the following: birth, adoption and placement for adoption. You can add existing dependents not previously enrolled whenever a dependent gains eligibility as a result of a valid change in status event.

Change in Status of Employment Affecting Coverage Eligibility

Change in employment status of the employee, or a spouse or dependent of the employee, that affects the individual's eligibility under an employer's plan includes commencement or termination of employment.

An event that causes an employee's dependent to satisfy or cease to satisfy coverage requirements Gain/Loss of Dependents' under an employer's plan may include change in age, student, marital, employment or tax dependent Eligibility Status status. If a judgment, decree, or order from a divorce, annulment or change in legal custody requires that you provide accident or health coverage for your dependent child (including a foster child who is your dependent), you may change your election to provide coverage for the dependent child. If the order Judgment/Decree/Order requires that another individual (including your spouse and former spouse) covers the dependent child and provides coverage under that individual's plan, you may change your election to revoke coverage only for that dependent child and only if the other individual actually provides the coverage. Eligibility for Gain or loss of Medicare/Medicaid coverage may trigger a permitted election change. Government Programs

What is a maintenance medication? Maintenance drugs are prescriptions commonly used to treat conditions that are considered chronic or long-term. These conditions usually require regular, daily use of medicines. Examples of maintenance drugs are those used to treat high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma and diabetes.

When does the convenience fee apply? For example, if you are covered under TRS-ActiveCare Select, the first time you fill a 31-day supply of a generic maintenance drug at a retail pharmacy you will pay $20, then you will pay $35 each month that you fill a 31-day supply of that generic maintenance drug at a retail pharmacy. A 90-day supply of that same generic maintenance medication would cost $45, and you would save $225 over the year by filling a 90-day supply. A specialist is any physician other than family practitioner, internist, OB/GYN or pediatrician. 1 Illustrates benefits when in-network providers are used. For some plans non-network benefits are also available; there is no coverage for non-network benefits under the ActiveCare Select or ActiveCare Select Whole Health Plan; see Enrollment Guide for more information. Non-contracting providers may bill for amounts exceeding the allowable amount for covered services. Participants will be responsible for this balance bill amount, which maybe considerable. 2 For ActiveCare 1-HD, certain generic preventive drugs are covered at 100%. Participants do not have to meet the deductible ($2,750 - individual, $5,500 - family) and they pay nothing out of pocket for these drugs. Find the list of drugs at info.caremark.com/trsactivecare. 3 If a participant obtains a brand-name drug when a generic equivalent is available, they are responsible for the generic copay plus the cost difference between the brand-name drug and the generic drug. 4 If the cost of the drug is less than the minimum, you will pay the cost of the drug. 5 Participants can fill 32-day to 90-day supply through mail order.

About this Benefit A Health Savings Account is a tax-advantaged medical savings account available to employees who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan. The funds contributed to the account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit. Unlike a flexible spending account (FSA), funds roll over and accumulate year to year if not spent.

The interest earned in an HSA is tax free.

Money withdrawn for medical spending never falls under taxable income.

This is a general overview of your plan benefits. If the terms of this outline differ from your policy, the policy will govern. Additional plan details on covered expenses, limitations and exclusions are included in the summary plan description located on the 18 Victoria ISD Benefits Website: www.mybenefitshub.com/victoriaisd


HSA (Health Savings Account) HSA Bank has teamed up with your employer to create an affordable health coverage option that helps you save on healthcare expenses. This plan is only available for those who are participating in the Active Care 1-HD medical plan. You may not participate in the FSA plan if you participate in HSA. Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare participants are not eligible to participate in an HSA. You can use your Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for a wide range of IRS-qualified medical expenses for yourself, your spouse or tax dependents. An IRS-qualified medical expense is defined as an expense that pays for healthcare services, equipment, or medications. Funds used to pay for IRS-qualified medical expenses are always tax-free.

What is an HSA? 

 

A tax-advantaged savings account that you use to pay for eligible medical expenses as well as deductible, co-insurance, prescriptions, vision and dental care. Allows you to save while reducing your taxable income. Unused funds that will roll over year to year. There’s no “use it or lose it” penalty. A way to accumulate additional retirement savings. After age 65, funds can be withdrawn for any purpose without penalty.

Authorized Signers who are 55 or older must have their own HSA in order to make the catch-up contribution Monthly Fee: Your account will be charged a monthly fee of $1.75, waived with an average daily balance at or above $3,000.

Examples of Qualified Medical Expenses      

Surgery Braces Contact lenses Dentures Eyeglasses Vaccines

HSA Bank Contact Information 605 N. 8th Street, Ste 320 Sheboygan, WI 53081 Phone: 800-357-6246 www.hsabank.com

Using Funds Debit Card  You may use the card to pay merchants or service providers that accept VISA credit cards, so there is no need to pay cash up front and wait for reimbursements.  You can make a withdrawal at any time. Reimbursements for qualified medical expenses are tax free. If you are disabled or reach age 65, you can receive non-medical distributions without penalty, but you must report the distributions as taxable income. You may also use your funds for a spouse or tax dependent not covered by your HDHP.

2018 Annual HSA Contribution Limits Individual: $3,450 Family: $6,900 Catch-Up Contributions: Accountholders who meet the qualifications noted below are eligible to make an HSA catch-up contribution of an additional $1,000.  Health Savings accountholder  Age 55 or older (regardless of when in the year an accountholder turns 55)  Not enrolled in Medicare (if an accountholder enrolls in Medicare mid-year, catch-up contributions should be prorated) 19


How the HSA Plan Works A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an individually-owned, taxadvantaged account that you can use to pay for current or future IRS-qualified medical expenses. With an HSA, you’ll have the potential to build more savings for healthcare expenses or additional retirement savings through selfdirected investment options1.

How an HSA works: 

 

You can contribute to your HSA via payroll deduction, online banking transfer, or by sending a personal check to HSA Bank. Your employer or third parties, such as a spouse or parent, may contribute to your account as well. You can pay for qualified medical expenses with your HSA Bank Debit Card directly to your medical provider or pay out-of-pocket. You can either choose to reimburse yourself or keep the funds in your HSA to grow your savings. Unused funds will roll over year to year. After age 65, funds can be withdrawn for any purpose without penalty (subject to ordinary income taxes). Check balances and account information via HSA Bank’s Internet Banking 24/7.

Are you eligible for an HSA? If you have a qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) either through your employer, through your spouse, or one you’ve purchased on your own - chances are you can open an HSA. Additionally:  You cannot be covered by any other non-HSA-compatible health plan, including Medicare Parts A and B.  You cannot be covered by TriCare.  You cannot have accessed your VA medical benefits in the past 90 days (to contribute to an HSA).  You cannot be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return (unless it’s your spouse).  You must be covered by the qualified HDHP on the first day of the month. When you open an account, HSA Bank will request certain information to verify your identity and to process your application.

What are the annual IRS contribution limits? Contributions made by all parties to an HSA cannot exceed the annual HSA limit set by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Anyone can contribute to your HSA, but only the accountholder and employer can receive tax deductions on those contributions. Combined annual contributions for the accountholder, employer, and third parties (i.e., parent, spouse, or anyone else) must not exceed these limits2. 20

2018 Annual HSA Contribution Limits Individual = $3,450 Family = $6,900

Catch-up Contributions Accountholders who meet these qualifications are eligible to make an HSA catch-up contribution of $1,000: Health Savings accountholder; age 55 or older (regardless of when in the year an accountholder turns 55); not enrolled in Medicare (if an accountholder enrolls in Medicare mid-year, catch-up contributions should be prorated). Authorized signers who are 55 or older must have their own HSA in order to make the catchup contribution. According to IRS guidelines, each year you have until the tax filing deadline to contribute to your HSA (typically April 15 of the following year). Online contributions must be submitted by 2:00 p.m., Central Time, the business day before the tax filing deadline. Wire contributions must be received by noon, Central Time, on the tax filing deadline, and contribution forms with checks must be received by the tax filing deadline.

How can you benefit from tax savings? An HSA provides triple tax savings3. Here’s how:  Contributions to your HSA can be made with pre-tax dollars and any after-tax contributions that you make to your HSA are tax deductible.  HSA funds earn interest and investment earnings are tax free.  When used for IRS-qualified medical expenses, distributions are free from tax.

IRS-Qualified Medical Expenses You can use your HSA to pay for a wide range of IRS-qualified medical expenses for yourself, your spouse, or tax dependents. An IRS-qualified medical expense is defined as an expense that pays for healthcare services, equipment, or medications. Funds used to pay for IRS-qualified medical expenses are always taxfree. HSA funds can be used to reimburse yourself for past medical expenses if the expense was incurred after your HSA was established. While you do not need to submit any receipts to HSA Bank, you must save your bills and receipts for tax purposes.

1 Investment accounts are not FDIC insured, may lose value and are not a deposit or other obligation of, or guarantee by the bank. Investment losses which are replaced are subject to the annual contribution limits of the HSA. 2 HSA funds contributed in excess of these limits are subject to penalty and tax unless the excess and earnings are withdrawn prior to the due date, including any extensions for filing Federal Tax returns. Accountholders should consult with a qualified tax advisor in connection with excess contribution removal. The Internal Revenue Service requires HSA Bank to report withdrawals that are considered refunds of excess contributions.

About this Benefit Individual life is a policy that provides a specified death benefit to your beneficiary at the time of death. The advantage of having an individual life insurance plan as opposed to a group supplemental term life plan is that this plan is guaranteed renewable, portable and typically premiums remain the same over the life of the policy.

Experts recommend at least

x 10 your gross annual income in coverage when purchasing life insurance.

This is a general overview of your plan benefits. If the terms of this outline differ from your policy, the policy will govern. Additional plan details on covered expenses, limitations and exclusions are included in the summary plan description located on the 42 Victoria ISD Benefits Website: www.mybenefitshub.com/victoriaisd


Individual Life Life Insurance Highlights Voluntary permanent life insurance can be an ideal complement to the group term and optional term your employer might provide. Designed to be in force when you die, this voluntary universal life product is yours to keep, even when you change jobs or retire, as long as you pay the necessary premium. Group and voluntary term, on the other hand, typically are not portable if you change jobs and, even if you can keep them after you retire, usually costs more and declines in death benefit.

DID YOU KNOW? Those with no life insurance think it’s 3 times more expensive than it actually is.

The policy, PureLife-plus, is underwritten by Texas Life Insurance Company, and it has these outstanding features: 

High Death Benefit. With one of the highest death benefit available at the worksite,1 PureLife-plus gives your loved ones peace of mind, knowing there will be significant life insurance in force should you die prematurely.

Minimal Cash Value. Designed to provide high death benefit, PureLife-plus does not compete with the cash accumulation in your employer-sponsored retirement plans.

Long Guarantees. Enjoy the assurance of a policy that has a guaranteed death benefit to age 121 and level premium that guarantees coverage for a significant period of time (after the guaranteed period, premiums may go down, stay the same, or go up).

Refund of Premium. Unique in the marketplace, PureLifeplus offers you a refund of 10 years’ premium, should you surrender the policy if the premium you pay when you buy the policy ever increases. (Conditions apply.)

Accelerated Death Benefit Rider. Should you be diagnosed as terminally ill with the expectation of death within 12 months (24 months in Illinois), you will have the option to receive 92% (84% in Illinois) of the death benefit, minus a $150 ($100 in Florida) administrative fee. This valuable living benefit gives you peace of mind knowing that, should you need it, you can take the large majority of your death benefit while still alive. (Conditions apply.)

You may apply for this permanent, portable coverage, not only for yourself, but also for your spouse, minor children and grandchildren. Like most life insurance policies, Texas Life policies contain certain exclusions, limitations, exceptions, reductions of benefits, waiting periods and terms for keeping them in force. Please contact a Texas Life representative for costs and complete details. 1

Medical Transport MASA provides medical emergency transportation solutions and covers your out of pocket medical transport cost when your insurance falls short. MASA does not use a network, which means you are covered anywhere.

THE TRUTH... Americans today suffer from a false sense of security that their medical coverage will pay for all costs associated with emergency or critical care transport. The reality is that a majority of Americans are only partially covered for these high costs. Most healthcare policies will only pay based off of the “Usual and Customary Charges” while Medicare pays based off a set fee schedule, both leaving you with the remainder of the bill. You face the possibility that your medical coverage will deny the claim leaving you responsible for the ENTIRE bill.

MASA MTS for Employees Ensures...      

NO health questions NO age limits NO claim forms NO deductibles NO provider network limitations NO dollar limits on emergency transport costs

What is Covered?  

Emergency Helicopter Transport Emergency Ground Ambulance Transport

How Much Does It Cost? MASA Emergent rates are $9 a month, per employee/family coverage.

Emergent Card Example:

We provide medical emergency transportation solutions AND cover your out of pocket medical transport cost when your insurance falls short. “All I had to do was send the bill which was never paid by Medicare and TriCare for Life --- and the rest is history. When MASA received that bill, it was paid and all amounts owed satisfied.” --- MASA Member, 2015

FSA (Flexible Spending Account)

YOUR BENEFITS PACKAGE

PLAY VIDEO

About this Benefit A Cafeteria Plan is designed to take advantage of Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code. It allows you to pay certain qualified expenses on a pre-tax basis, thereby reducing your taxable income. You can set aside a pre-established amount of money per plan year in a Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Funds allocated to a healthcare FSA must be used during the plan year or are forfeited unless your plan contains a $500 rollover or grace period provision.

Unlimited FSA (Non HSA Compatible) The funds in the unlimited healthcare FSA can be used to pay for eligible medical expenses like deductibles, co-payments, orthodontics, glasses and contacts.

FLIP TOâ&#x20AC;Ś PG. 11 FOR HSA VS. FSA COMPARISON

This is a general overview of your plan benefits. If the terms of this outline differ from your policy, the policy will govern. Additional plan details on covered expenses, limitations and exclusions are included in the summary plan description located on the 50 Victoria ISD Benefits Website: www.mybenefitshub.com/victoriaisd


FSA (Flexible Spending Account) What is a Flexible Spending Account? A Flexible Spending Account is a benefit provided by your employer that lets you set aside a certain amount of your paycheck into an account before paying income taxes. Then, during the year, you can use the funds in the account to pay for qualified expenses with untaxed dollars.

Why should I participate in the plan?

If I set aside part of my pay, won’t I make less money? NO. For every dollar you set aside to pay qualified expenses, you save FICA and federal income tax withholding. Your net take-home pay will increase by the tax you save. Plus, when you pay a qualified expense or receive a cash reimbursement, it’s TAX FREE.

Your biggest benefit is savings on payroll withholding taxes. You will save $25 to $40 on every $100 you budget to pay for qualified expenses.

Can I change my contribution during the year?

What expenses qualify for payment?

YES, but only in certain situations. For the Health FSA and Dependent Care FSA, you can change your election if you have a change in status or a change in your employment or the employment of your spouse or a dependent.

Most qualified expenses are for goods or services that you’ll buy anyway. They include health care costs such as co-pays, doctors’ fees, over-the-counter items and prescriptions, dental and eye care expenses and daycare expenses for dependents so you can work.

How do I know how much is available for me to spend and how do I file a claim? Your balance and claim forms are available 24/7 online at www.myRSC.com and all other details are always available online or by calling the Flex Hotline at 866-419-3519. Filing claims is easy. Just complete a claim form and attach a copy of the bill. Then, send it to us. Within a short time (usually less than 72 hours), you’ll receive your TAX-FREE reimbursement.

Must money be deposited in my account before I pay expenses or file a claim? NO. The entire annual amount you elect for the Health Care Spending Account (Health FSA) is available on the first day. However, only amounts contributed to date are available for the Dependent Care Spending Account (Dependent Care FSA).

What if I don’t use all the money in my account? Victoria ISD's Flexible Spending Account allows for participants to roll-over a maximum of $500 of unused fund. Any amount in excess of $500 is forfeited.

What happens to my accounts if I terminate employment? You may request reimbursement for qualified expenses incurred prior to your termination date.

AS OF JANUARY 1, 2011: All over-the-counter items require a one-time physician’s prescription per plan year.

I already have health insurance. Why should I participate in the Health FSA? The Health FSA is used to pay for expenses not covered by insurance. These include co-pays, over-the-counter medications, glasses, contacts, orthodontics and prescription drugs, just to name a few.

I don’t use my employer’s health insurance. Can I still save? YES. You can still set aside money (before taxes are taken out) to budget and pay for qualified expenses. Remember, a qualified expense paid from this plan cannot be eligible for reimbursement from another plan. 51


FSA (Flexible Spending Account) How Flexible Spending Accounts Work When you pay for these expenses with pre-tax dollars, you pay no social security or federal income tax on your contributions. Your taxable income and your taxes are reduced. Here’s how it works:

Let’s say you earn $25,000 per year. And you are paid semi-monthly, so each paycheck is for gross compensation of $1,041.67. You have insurance premiums and other expenses eligible for payment through the Health FSA of $62.50 per pay period. Here is a comparison of what your paycheck looks like both with and without the Flexible Spending Account.

As you can see, when you pay for your expenses with pre-tax dollars, your net income is increased!

Eligible Expenses

****GAIN****

When you incur a medical, dental or vision expense, you will be reimbursed the “full” amount of the expense at that time, up to your yearly contribution election. EXAMPLE: You are going to contribute $500 for the plan year ($41.67 per month). On January 15, you visit your eye doctor and receive your exam and contact lenses for a total charge of $200.

Fax that receipt to Higginbotham and receive your full $200 back within 24-72 hours, even though you do not have the $200 in your account at that time.

You are entitled to the entire $500 from day one of your plan year.

Orthodontia Expenses If you are currently paying on an orthodontia contract for yourself, your spouse or your children, you can put that payment aside in your Health FSA and use the mySourceCard to make the payment each month to your orthodontist. All we need is a copy of your current contract and the first payment receipt made with the mySourceCard. Your monthly orthodontic payments will be substantiated automatically for the current plan year.

Your account balance and claim forms are available 24/7 online at www.myRSC.com All other general details are always available online or by calling the Flex Hotline at 866-419–3519

FSA (Flexible Spending Account) Reasons to Take Advantage of the Tax Savings Now Taking advantage of the Health FSA and Dependent Care FSA doesn’t change what you do at tax time. You actually get a “tax refund” on every paycheck after electing the benefits because you pay no tax on the money you set aside each pay period. You decide how much money to put into the plan and where and when to spend the money in your account. This is a great way to budget. A regular amount is deducted from your paycheck, but the entire annual election is always available for you to spend on eligible expenses from day one of the plan year. Starting January 1, 2015, Health Care Reform limits the annual election for Health FSAs to $2,650. Once you have enrolled in the plan, everything you need can be found at the website www.myRSC.com. You can even enter your claim online. Then you just print the claim form and submit it along with your detailed receipts. It only takes a few moments to go to the website and familiarize yourself with the reimbursement plan. Turning in a reimbursement claim is quick and easy. Don’t worry about it making your social security benefits smaller because social security benefits are based on your lifetime earnings history. Your social security benefits may be slightly reduced by participating in the plan. However, tax advisors will tell you that the tax savings you earn today will far outweigh any reduction in social security benefits. The Flexible Spending Accounts are not just for people who need prescription drugs and have children — everyone has medical expenses, not just families. And with the new IRS Revenue ruling, anyone who buys over-thecounter (OTC) drugs may be reimbursed through the plan. The plan is not just for prescription drugs. Things like cough syrup, pain relievers, allergy medicine, etc. are included with an OTC prescription. It is OK if both you and your spouse enroll in a similar plan at work. There is no IRS limit on the amount of medical expenses that can be reimbursed per household. Each employer sets the annual limits for the Health FSA plan.

Don’t worry that you cannot afford to have any more money taken out of your paycheck… Did you know you can get money out of the plan before you put it in? By joining the plan, you can have the plan pay your health care expenses in full at the time of service, even before you make your contribution. Do you take a deduction for medical expenses on a Form 1040? If so, you can only do so after you spend in excess of 7.5%-10% of your adjusted gross income for them. The first dollar you pay for unreimbursed medical expenses is not deductible on your Form 1040. But through the Health FSA, the very first dollar you spend will earn you 25%-40% in tax savings.

Dependent Care Spending Account        

 

You and your spouse must be employed in order to participate, or one of you can be a full-time student actively looking for work, or disabled. Kindergarten is not reimbursable, unless it can be determined that the educational part is incidental and cannot be separated from the cost of care. Overnight camps are not eligible — only day camps can be considered. Household service is eligible if part of the service is for the care of a qualifying person. Before and after school care is eligible. Your care provider cannot be your dependent. The debit card cannot be used for dependent child care. The maximum flex deduction per family per year is $5,000 when filing jointly or head of household; and $2,500 when married filing separately. HOWEVER, the IRS maximum limit for income tax purposes is $6,000 and $3,000 — whatever amount you do not deduct from your Flexible Spending Account, you can deduct the difference (up to $3,000 or $6,000) on your income tax return. Any care for your children whom you claim as tax dependents under the age of 13 is eligible. A person may qualify for only part of the year if he/she turns 13 mid-year. Care for spouse or dependents of any age who spend at least eight hours a day in your home, who are mentally or physically incapable of self-care is eligible.

FSA (Flexible Spending Account) Answers to Common Questions

Mobile myRSC

Q: I take a dependent care credit on Form 1040. Will the Dependent Care Spending Account save more? A: The more you earn, the more you’ll save. In addition, you’ll also save social security tax (FICA) with a Dependent Care Spending Account. So, don’t wait until April 15 to take the credit. Now, you can save taxes on every paycheck.

Benefits at Your Fingertips You can access your employee account information on your smartphone with the Mobile myRSC app for iPhone and Android.

Which is best for you? Visit www.myRSC.com and use the easy calculator under the Employees tab to determine your savings. Q: Are there any negatives I should know about? A: Because you will not pay social security tax on the amount of gross pay you set aside to pay for qualified expenses, your social security benefits at retirement may be slightly reduced. However, most tax advisors recommend taking advantage of current taxsavings opportunities like the Health FSA and Dependent Care FSA. Also, if disability insurance is paid on a pre-tax basis, any future benefits you receive will be taxable.

How to Use Mobile myRSC

We need to know the date of service in order to pay the claim when you submit a dental or doctor bill. Please DO NOT submit “balance forward” or “previous balance” statements. On your doctor visit co-pays, we need the actual statement from the doctor if the charge is anything other than a co-pay amount. They will print a statement for you. We need date of service, service rendered, patient’s name, insurance payments, etc. If the statement is pink or yellow, please make a dark copy before faxing. The pink and yellow copies are not legible when faxed. An OTC RX Checklist is located at the back of this booklet. Please have your physician complete this form and return it to us, and any over-the-counter items you submit will be reimbursable back to you. When submitting a statement for a coinsurance, deductible or hospital expense, please make sure the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) states very clearly the date of service, patient name and procedure. The best document to submit is the EOB from your health insurance provider, as all these details will be included once insurance has been processed.

Employee  24/7 access to plan documents, letters and notices, forms, account balances, contributions, investments and other plan information or cafeteria plans, health reimbursement arrangements and transit plans  Change personal information/census data online  Access to contact information or the administrator  Access to 125 tax calculators

Debit Card Procedure   

 

Use your debit card at the time of service (doctor’s office, hospital, pharmacy, etc.). The debit card cannot be used for child care. Make sure you get a statement for the service rendered.  Hospital: Statement from the doctor with the procedure code and diagnosis code, date of service, name of patient and name and address of the provider.  Dental/Vision: Statement with the procedure code, date of service, name of patient and name and address of the provider. Fax in the statement the next time you come to work: 817-882-9267 or toll-free 866-419-3516. You can either fax the documents after you have received your services OR you can wait until you receive an e-mail from the plan requesting that you send in the statements. You will NOT get an e-mail for all of your swipes — the copays for your doctor visits and prescription co-pays will automatically substantiate. However, any time you swipe the card for any amount other than a copay amount, you will need to submit the itemized statement or an Explanation of Benefits. Very Important: If you do not fax the documentation within 60 days from the date you receive the e-mail, your debit card will be suspended until proper substantiation is received.

Debit Card FAQs Q: Can I use my debit card to pay for over-the-counter drugs? A: No. You must provide a physician-signed over-the-counter prescription, and you must submit a paper claim for these items and then be reimbursed.

Q: The following items are auto substantiated: A: (1) Certain transactions involving dollar amounts that are consistent with predetermined co-pay under the plan. (2) Certain recurring previously approved expenses. (3) Certain charges that are substantiated at the time of the sale or if the vendors that participate are in the inventory information system (IIAS). Q: Purchases at pharmacies and medical providers that do not subscribe to the IIAS are treated as conditionally approved and paid at the time of service; statements must be faxed after the purchase to substantiate the purchase was for a qualified expense, i.e.: A: (1) A dentist office could charge you $200 for teeth bleaching. The $200 would be approved at the time of sale, but the member must submit the statement with the required information. Since teeth bleaching is not a covered expense, the claim would be denied, and the member would pay the plan $200. (2) A physician could charge $150 for a consult for cosmetic surgery. The $150 would be approved at the time of purchase, but cosmetic surgery is not a covered item and the claim is not eligible for reimbursement under IRS guidelines. The claim would be denied, and the member would owe the plan $150. (3) A member pays $125 for a qualified medical expense. He/ she uses the debit card, sends in the form with the required information, and it is marked as eligible in the system.

Renewing Your Debit Card    

Your debit card will work for three years initially. Check the expiration date on front of the card. If your company has the “grace extension” added to the end of the plan year and you have a “balance” from the old year, that balance will “transfer” to the new debit card. To receive a replacement card, you will be charged a $2.00 fee. If your card is “suspended” as of the last day of your plan year, your new card will not work until the old plan year expenses are paid back.

New Plan Year Debit Card Use with an Old Plan Year Balance The main thing to keep in mind is that if your company has the “grace extension” or "rollover provision" on the prior plan year, the balance in your “prior” plan year will be loaded to your debit card — the system will automatically do a “look back” at the old plan year and apply these expenses to that plan year first.
