As our first week with PayFlex comes to a close, a few reminders for those with a Health Care Flexible Spending Account.
By now you have received a new PayFlex Debit Card that you can begin to use on or after May 8, 2015 to pay for Prescription Drug co-pays. The FSA PayFlex card will allow participants to use the card at qualified merchants where MasterCard is accepted. In order for the cards to work the stores must have a system that can process healthcare cards (most large chain stores have this system). The debit card can only be used to pay for prescription copays. *Once you exhaust your Flexible Spending Account please retain your debit card if you plan to elect to have a flexible spending account in future years. If you elected a healthcare flexible spending account in 2015 and have NOT received a debit card please contact email@example.com
