HEALTH REIMBURSEMENT ACCOUNT

A Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) is a tax-advantaged savings account available to you if you enroll in Plans C, J, N or Q. The State contributes to the HRA account on your behalf. You may use the money in your HRA to pay for eligible health expenses. When you earn HealthQuest rewards, you are eligible to receive contributions in your HRA. The HRA will end if you terminate employment and does not have a rollover provision.

Employees who are not eligible to contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA) because of one of the following reasons will need to elect the HRA option:

  • Enrolled in Medicare A or B.
  • Enrolled in TRICARE.
  • Being claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return.
  • Concurrent enrollment in another health plan not considered a Qualified High Deductible Health Plan.

State Employees – Employer contributions are made to your account quarterly.

┬áNon State Employees – Employer contributions are made to your account monthly. If you have remaining HRA funds at the end of the plan year (December 31), the funds do not roll to the next year. Participants will have 60 days from December 31 to file manual claims for expenses incurred in the plan year. If you should terminate employment, you will have 60 days to file manual claims for any expenses incurred while employed for the plan year.

Note: New State and Non State employees, the Employer Contributions will begin the quarter following the benefit effective date. For additional information visit http://www.kdheks.gov/hcf/sehp/HRA_NueSynergy.htm. The employer contribution amounts are outlined on the following page.

IMPORTANT: Should you terminate coverage with the SEHP prior to the end of the plan year, you will have sixty (60) days from your last date on SEHP coverage to file any claims incurred while you were covered that plan year.
Participants will have sixty (60) days from the end of a plan year (December 31st) to file any claims incurred during that plan year.
