Flexible Spending Accounts
For State Employees Only
Vendor – NueSynergy – https://www.mywealthcareonline.com/kansasfsa/
You must enroll each October during the open enrollment period. The new enrollment will become effective January 1.
FSA participants can carry over up to $500 of remaining FSA funds into the next plan year and those funds may be used for qualified medical expenses incurred during that year. This valuable feature gives you the flexibility to spend your FSA funds at a future date and reduces the likelihood that your unused funds will be forfeited. The carryover will not count against your annual election and your cumulative carryover balance from year to year cannot exceed $500.
Remaining Health/Limited FSA funds will automatically be carried over to the type of FSA in which you are currently enrolled, as long as the balance is $25 or greater. If the balance is below $25, funds will not automatically carry over and will only be accessible during the run out period. After the run out period, any remaining balance will be forfeited.
If you are enrolled in Plan C and enrolling into an HSA for the first time in plan year 2017 and previously had a Healthcare FSA, your funds will automatically carry over into a Limited Scope FSA.
To receive reimbursement for Dependent Care, you must submit your provider’s Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number (EIN). There is no grace period for the Dependent Care FSA. You have until April 30, 2018, to submit documentation for reimbursement of Plan Year 2017 dependent care expenses. Plan the amount you put into your FSA carefully so that it does not exceed the amount you are likely to pay for eligible expenses.
During enrollment, you’ll complete a mandatory direct-deposit form, and you will receive your free Kansas FSA debit card. By using your debit card, you’ll rarely have Out Of Pocket expenses; you’ll have access to the full plan year amount on January 1, 2017; and you’ll eliminate paper claim submissions. Remember, the debit card is not a paperless form of reimbursement. You may still have to submit supporting documentation for your expenses if requested by NueSynergy.
Reimbursements are provided via direct deposit.
