What’s New?

File Your 7/2013-6/2014 Flexible Spending Claims Before It’s Too Late!

The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) run-out period to file claims for the July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014 plan year ends September 30, 2014. By that date, employees must submit reimbursement requests for all eligible FSA expenses and resolve all outstanding transactions, including unverified FSA card transactions, for the 2013 – 2014 coverage period.

To submit claims for qualified expenses for the 2013-2014 Health FSA or Dependent Care FSA, employees must submit a claim to Anthem/CONEXIS by the September 30, 2014 deadline. Claims may be submitted online at www.benefitadminsolutions.com/anthem,by FAX at 1-888-347-5212, or by mail to Anthem FSA, P.O. Box 660165, Dallas, TX 75266-0165. Employees should contact CONEXIS at 1-877-451-7244 for assistance with FSA information.

Any funds remaining in the 2013-2014 FSAs that are not claimed by the end of the FSA run-out period will be forfeited. Unverified FSA card transactions that are not resolved by the end of the run-out period will be re-classified as taxable income.
