2014 health care reimbursement account reminder

Have you used all of your 2014 health care reimbursement account funds?

Employees with a 2014 health care or dependent care reimbursement account must spend the remaining balance by the end of the plan year. Health care expenses to be reimbursed with the 2014 health care reimbursement accounts must be incurred by March 15. Dependent care expenses for 2014 must have been incurred by Dec. 31, 2014. Claims for both types of accounts must be submitted to the plan administrator, Payflex, by April 30. Any flexible spending contributions remaining after the deadline are forfeited.

Employees submit flexible spending claims to PayFlex online or via fax at 402-231-4310. If it is your first time using the online system, the employee ID number is your Fermilab ID number with no leading zero and no ‘N’. The Fermilab group number is 121378. Employees can review a list of eligible expenses, view current balances and see paid claims online.
