Your Benefits Card pays for eligible expenses with dollars from the current plan year. So it’s important for you to know when your plan year ends and a new one begins. When a new plan year starts, ask yourself these questions before using your Benefits Card.
✔ Do you have funds available in the current plan year? Log in to check your balance.
✔ Are you paying for an expense that occurred in the current plan year? Log in to view your plan year dates.
✔ Is your card active with no outstanding documentation requests on your account? Log in and you'll see a pop-up for any outstanding documentation requests.
If you answered YES to each of the questions, use your Benefits Card!
If you answered No to a single question on the checklist, do not use the Benefits Card to pay for the expense. Pay for the expense with your preferred payment method and submit an online claim for reimbursement. Here’s more information about these scenarios.
Near the end of every plan year, review how your BESTflex Plan or EBC HRA works to make sure you’re using it to your best advantage.
