Flexible Benefits Program (Wex - formerly Discovery Benefits)
Eligible employees (20+ hours per week) can save money by converting unreimbursed medical expenses and dependent care expenses from an after-tax to a before-tax basis.
Plan year is January 1 through December 31. The annual maximums for 2021 will be $2,750 ($250 min) for Health Care Flex Plan and $5,000 for the Dependent Care Flex Plan. All expenses need to be incurred January 1 through December 31. You may claim reimbursement for 90 days after the plan year closes.
For the 2021 plan year, you are eligible to carry over a minimum of $50 to a maximum of $550 into the next medical flex plan year; these funds will be available after the 90 day run-out period. This does not limit you to electing the full amount for the next years' plan. The rollover option is only available if you continue to enroll in each flex plan year; you cannot skip a plan year and have funds rollover.
In mid-November, an email will be sent out from the HR Department to all employees eligible to participate and enroll for the next plan year. New employees that are hired after the open enrollment period are eligible to enroll and any employees that experience a qualifying event may enroll or make changes to their current status. For more information, contact Paulette Kerzmann or (701) 323-4072.
