Flexible Spending Accounts 

Flexible spending accounts can be added through the BeneCom℠ Corporation relationship with Wageworks. FSAs enable employees to put aside pre-tax dollars for certain out-of-pocket expenses they already plan to spend during the year.

We offer the "take care®" Debit Card — the single card solution, simplifies how participants pay for one or multiple benefits expenses.

Participants won't have to pay qualified expenses with personal funds and then wait for reimbursement from their Flex benefit account.

 

Employee FAQ: The Carryover Provision for Health FSA

 

What has changed?

 The IRS amended the use-or-lose rule to allow a limited amount of unused funds to rollover at the end of the plan year. Although the IRS notice calls it “carryover”, we call it “rollover”.

 

How much can rollover?

Up to $500 in unused funds can rollover into the following plan year. While your employer may elect to allow less the $500 to be carried over, the same rollover limit applies to all plan participants.

 

Does the new rollover rule apply to Limited-Purpose or Post-Deductible FSA’s?

Yes. Under IRS guidance, the new rule applies to all Health FSA’s.

 

Does the new rollover rule apply to Dependent Care FSA’s? 

No. Your dependent care FSA is independent of this Health FSA ruling and remains unaffected.

 

If rollover is offered, doesn’t this change the $2,550 maximum annual election?

No. For example: If the full $500 were to rollover into the following plan year and you elected to contribute the full $2,550 (must be a minimum of $100) in that year, you would have a total of $3,050 available for reimbursement of eligible healthcare expenses that year.

 

Does my rollover FSA affect my eligibility to participate in a Health Savings Account (HSA)?

No. For example: If the full $500 were to rollover into the following plan year and you elected to contribute the full $2,550 (must be a minimum of $100) in that year, you would have a total of $3,050 available for reimbursement of eligible healthcare expenses that year.

 

Does the rollover option affect the run out period?

No. You will still be able to file claims during the run out period for expenses incurred during the plan year. This will be useful if you have more the $500 in your Health FSA account at the end of the year. Check your plan document for the length of your run out period. Once all run out period claims have been processed for reimbursement your rollover funds will move into the new plan year.

 

Do I have to elect a Health FSA in the plan year into which funds are rolled over?

Yes. You must make an active election of a minimum of $100 in order to take advantage of any carryover funds you have remaining in the previous plan year.

How does the rollover apply to a short plan year?

Rollover of funds for a short plan year is allowed.

 

How is the rollover amount calculated?

The carryover amount is determined after all expenses have been reimbursed for that plan year (after the end of the plan’s run out period). For example, if a plan has a run out period that ends on March 31 of the following plan year, the amount rolled over for a plan year is equal to the amount from that plan year remaining in the participant’s Health FSA after March 31 (up to the rollover amount elected by the employer, but no more than $500). Any unused amount in excess of $500 (or, if lower, the carryover amount elected by the employer) is forfeited.

 

How long do I have to use my rollover funds?

According to the IRS ruling, “The carryover of up to $500 may be used to pay or reimburse medical expenses under the Health FSA incurred during the entire plan year to which it is carried over.” The expense must be incurred by the last day of the plan year into which the funds were rolled over. However, if you terminate employment, then you are only eligible for reimbursement for claims with dates of service on or before your termination date.

 

In what order are funds utilized for new claims?

According to the guidance examples, current year funds should be used prior to any rollover funds being used.

 

Can I use my benefits debit card to access rollover funds?

Yes. Once all run out claims are processed for payment all rollover funds will be available on the debit card.

 

Are rollover amounts cumulative?

No. The rollover amount from one year to the next is capped at $500. For example, if you have $500 that rolls over from 2016 to 2017, and then you contribute $500 in 2017, but do not file any claims for 2017, the rollover amounts cannot be combined to $1,000 to be carried forward into 2018 – only $500 can be carried forward if you make an active 2018 plan year election ($100 minimum)

 

What happens to the rollover if my employment is terminated?

If you leave the Company mid-plan year, you are not eligible to receive rollover funds, unless you elect COBRA. However, you have a run out period to submit claims within the dates of service for which you were eligible for reimbursement.
