Health and Day Care Flexible Spending Accounts

The state offers both a medical and a day care flexible spending account option to employees as a way to decrease out of pocket expenses for these expenses. Under a provision of the Internal Revenue Codes, employees are allowed to payroll deduct a portion of their gross income on a pre-tax basis for the payment of their medical and day care expenses. Using pre-tax dollars to pay for out of pocket medical and day care expenses can reduce your costs by 30% or more depending on your tax bracket.

For plan years beginning on or after July 1, 2014, the State Health Care FSA plan will allow up to $500 of unused dollars to be carried over to the following plan year. Carryover amounts will be credited after your claim filing period.

Navia Benefit Solutions administers our state health and day care flexible spending accounts (FSAs). Debit cards are available to flexible spending account participants. For plan details, please see the Flexible Spending Enrollment Kit and the Summary Plan Description. To enroll, please complete the Navia FSA Enrollment Form and submit to your agency Human Resource office.

The Company Code of RHI is required when registering for an on-line account upon receipt of your debit cards. For customer service, please contact Navia Benefit Solutions at 800-669-3539 or by e-mail at customerservice@naviabenefits.com.
