Claims Deadline Reminder

Now is the time to make sure you have submitted all your 2022 Federal Flexible Spending Account Program (FSAFEDS) claims. All claims for the 2022 benefit period must be received no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on Sunday, April 30, 2023. Any 2022 claims received after this time will not be reimbursed. Do not miss a savings opportunity!

Important Reminders

  • The Health Care FSA (HCFSA) and Limited Expense Health Care FSA (LEX HCFSA) allow you to carry over any unused funds up to $570 into the 2023 benefit period, but you need to submit your claims for 2022 eligible expenses by Sunday, April 30, 2023, or they will not be reimbursed.
    • To be eligible for carryover, you must meet the following requirements:
      • Active participation on the last day of the 2022 Health Care FSA and Limited Expense Health Care FSA plan year, with a remaining balance.
      • Re-enrollment in either a Health Care FSA or the Limited Expense Health Care FSA during Open Season for the 2023 benefit period.
      • The carryover amount is available at the beginning of the 2023 benefit period. Claims with dates of service incurred during 2022 are reimbursed from the 2022 benefit period first. Once the 2022 account is depleted, claims with 2022 dates of service will pay from the carryover balance, until the prior year deadline.
      • To allow for reimbursement of prior year expenses claimed by the April 30 deadline, the carryover balance will not move to the current year account until late May. We will pay any new expenses from the 2023 account first.
  • Be sure to submit your claims for your 2021 and/or 2022 Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA) before the deadline. All claims for eligible 2021 DCFSA expenses incurred between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2022, as well as eligible 2022 DCFSA expenses incurred between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022, must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday, April 30, 2023. Any 2021 and/or 2022 DCFSA claims received after this time will not be reimbursed.
