The HCM Help Line is short staffed today due to illness, and this will likely result in longer call waits. If your issue is not deadline driven, we recommend calling tomorrow for shorter wait times.
FSA filing deadline approaching
Tick-tock: The deadline to submit health care and dependent care claims for Flexible Spending Accounts for the 2012-13 plan year is Nov. 15.
The FSA plan year ended June 30. A grace period allows members to submit claims for FSA-eligible services incurred through Sept. 15. All reimbursement requests for the plan year must be postmarked (ASIFlex, P.O. Box 6044 Columbia, MO 65205), submitted online (www.asiflex.com) or faxed to 877-879-9038 by midnight (MDT) Nov. 15.
Claims incurred through Sept. 15 will first be applied to available funds from the prior plan year (2012-13). Any excess claims amounts will be applied to the new plan year (2013-14), assuming you re-enrolled.
Reimbursement requests submitted after Nov. 15 for expenses incurred in the 2012-13 plan year will be denied. Per Federal IRS regulations, any unused funds will be forfeited.
