How To Enroll In Benefits:

The benefit choices you make during your initial enrollment remain in effect for the entire year.

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.

Health Savings Account

The Health Savings Account (HSA) allows you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. By contributing to a HSA you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.

To be eligible for an HSA, you must be enrolled in the BlueSaver High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). Once you are enrolled, you will open a HSA through Wex Health (previously Discovery Benefits). Those are currently enrolled in the HSA will continue to use the Discovery Benefits card until they expire. If your card is due to expire, you will receive a Wex Health branded card.

Flexible Spending Accounts

TMI offers employees the opportunity to enroll in health care and dependent care flexible spending accounts (FSAs) for eligible employees, administered by Wex Health (previously Discovery Benefits). These accounts allow you to pay for eligible health and dependent care expenses with pretax dollars. By contributing to one or both of the Flexible Spending Accounts you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.


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.

You may contribute as follows:

Traditional Health Care FSA

  • Up to $1,500 annually

How the 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 30th annually to file your claims. Any funds after March 30 unclaimed will be forfeited.
