WageWorks is now the claims administrator for employees’ FSA and HRA/VEBA accounts

As of Jan. 1, WageWorks is the claims administrator for employees’ Minneflex flexible spending (FSA) accounts and HRA/VEBA accounts.

Most employees received a WageWorks Health Care debit card

If you enrolled in health care coverage during open enrollment, you should have received a WageWorks Health Care debit card in the mail at home. After you have activated your card, you can use this card to pay for eligible health care expenses from your FSA or HRA/VEBA accounts (see below). 

Accessing 2013 Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA’s)

If you set up a 2013 FSA (Flexible Spending Account) health care account during open enrollment, you can submit claims for reimbursement for health care expenses incurred in 2013 any time after Jan 1, 2013.

If you set up a 2013 FSA dependent care account during open enrollment, you can submit claims for reimbursement for dependent care expenses incurred in 2013 any time after Jan 1, 2013. 

Accessing 2012 FSA and HRA/VEBA accounts

Because WageWorks is now the City’s administrator, you can no longer submit claims to last year’s claims administrator — Optum Health — even though you incurred the expense in 2012. WageWorks will process 2012 Minneflex and HRA/VEBA claims when the hold period ends on Jan. 13, 2013. (The hold period is needed to finalize the transfer of account balances to WageWorks.)

Submit remaining 2012 FSA claims and HRA/VEBA claims to WageWorks, beginning Monday, Jan.14.  Claims submitted before January 14 will likely be denied in the hold period.
