Overview

As you know, [CLIENT NAME] sponsors a self-funded medical plan. This means you share in the cost of the plan through your payroll deductions, copays and coinsurance, [TPA] provides the plan administration and [CLIENT NAME] pays the claims. This year our plan ran well, meaning costs were well managed resulting in a good renewal. Some years we aren't so fortunate and increased costs must be shared. So given the personal and business challenges we have all experienced during the pandemic, we are happy to share this good news!


[CLIENT NAME] remains committed to providing a competitive, cost-effective benefit program. We are implementing many changes and additions for the 2022 plan year, which we hope will be positively received by you and your families. Below are highlights of changes that will become effective on [EFFECTIVE DATE].


Please review your 2022 [CLIENT NAME] Open Enrollment Employee Benefits Guide for information on all of your benefits.

You can, however, modify your elections under certain circumstances, called "Qualifying Events" These are events such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, loss of eligibility under another plan. If you experience a qualifying event, you may make changes to your benefits within 30 days of the event or 60 days if the event is due to birth or adoption of a child.

FSA & HSA

The Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and the Health Savings Account (HSA) allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. By contributing to an FSA or HSA you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.


HEALTH CARE FSA

  • You may contribute up to $2,750 annually
  • All benefit eligible can participate, unless you or your spouse are contributing to an HSA
  • Reimbursements allowed for unreimbursed medical, prescription, dental, and vision expenses


DEPENDENT CARE FSA

  • You may contribute up to $5,000 annually
  • Limited to $2,500 if you are married and file separate tax returns
  • Eligible expenses include care for your dependent child, spouse, parent or grandparent who are incapable of caring for themselves


FSA Contributions

The election you make during enrollment is your election for the entire plan year. You may change it only if you have a qualifying life event and the change request must be consistent with the event.


How the FSA Plan Works

You must incur your eligible expenses during the plan year — January 1 to December 31. An expense is considered to be incurred when the service is performed, not when you are billed or pay for the service. You do, however, have until March 31st annually to file your claims. Any funds after March 31 unclaimed will be forfeited.


HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT (HSA)

  • You may contribute up to $3,650 annually as an individual or $7,300 as a family
  • You must be enrolled in a qualified HSA-eligible health plan, but you or your spouse may not participate in an FSA or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)


How the HSA Plan Works

You may use your HSA funds to pay for eligible medical, prescription drug, dental or vision expenses. Unused funds remain in your account for future use and roll over each calendar year. You can change your HSA contribution at any time during the plan year for any reason.
