Be a Wise Healthcare Consumer

Remember to Use Your UT FLEX HCRA Funds and File Your HCRA and DCRA Claims

If you have a UT FLEX Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA) with PayFlex®, remember, the HCRA has a use-it-or-lose-it rule. This means, you will forfeit any funds left in your account at the end of the plan year.

To avoid losing your funds, remember these important dates:

HCRA Deadlines
Last day to spend your FSA funds -
Note: You must incur eligible expenses by this date.
November 15, 2013
Last day to submit claims for reimbursement -
Note: PayFlex must receive your claims by this date.
November 30, 2013

What Can I Spend My Remaining Funds On?

You can visit any time to view your account balance. If you've contributed too much to your HCRA and have funds remaining there are a few things you can do to use them before the grace period ends on November 15, 2013.

How Do I Use My Remaining Funds?

Important Note: Save all of your receipts. If you have an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance plan, save that too. When you submit a claim, you’ll need to submit the EOB or detailed receipt.

For health care expenses – The documentation must show the date the purchase or service was incurred, your financial responsibility, description of purchase or type of service, provider or merchant name and patient name (if applicable). 

What Do I Need to Know About My Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA)?

Even though the deadline to incur Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA) expenses has passed (August 31, 2013), you still have until November 30, 2013 to submit your claims.

If your dependent care provider completes and signs a paper claim form, you do not need to include a detailed receipt or statement. If you submit a claim online, you must submit either a detailed receipt or statement that shows the dates of service, amount of service, dependent name and provider name.
