4 Benefits Debit Card

5 The Flexible Benefits Debit Card is a special purpose MasterCard® that gives you an automatic way to pay for qualified healthcare expenses from your Flexible Benefit Plan. It works like a MasterCard® Card, with the value of your yearly target amount stored on it.

6 What happens when I receive my Benefits Card?
You will receive one card, though you may request another. Your card will be activated with the first swipe of the card. There will be no fees associated with the card. You will receive one card. In your enrollment verification packet, you will receive a form to request one additional card for a spouse or a dependent. If you or an authorized card holder loses or accidentally destroys a card, contact CompuSys/Erisa Group Inc. immediately so that we can turn off your current card and issue a replacement card. A $1.00 fee will be deducted from your FSA account to replace each lost, stolen or destroyed card.

7 How Do I use my card? It works like a MasterCard® Card, with the value of your yearly target amount stored on it. It's from that total target dollar amount that eligible expenses will be deducted as you use your card. When you have eligible expenses at a business that accepts MasterCard®, simply use your Card. The amount of your eligible purchases will be deducted automatically from your account and the pre-tax dollars will be electronically transferred to the provider/merchant for immediate payment.

8 Where can I use my Benefits Card?

Several weeks after you’ve used your Flexible Benefits Card, you will receive a letter in the mail asking for you to provide documentation that shows that your debit card charge was an eligible expense. Please mail back the letter, in addition to either an itemized receipt, Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance company, prescription tags, or an itemized cash register receipt.

For co-pays the bill must indicate the date of service, patient, provider name and co-pay amount.
