7 Dependent Care FSA Annual minimum contribution Annual maximum contribution $0 $5,000 Helps you pay for child or adult care costs. You and your spouse, if married must be actively working, seeking employment, or full-time student, in order to get reimbursed. The cost of care must be for your child under age 13 or for a spouse or dependent who is not able to take care of him or herself. You can only be reimbursed up to the amount that is available in your account. If married and both individuals are enrolled in a dependent care FSA, the combined IRS maximum contribution remains at $5,000. For example: Each individual could elect $2,500 for their dependent care FSA. 7

8 Dependent Care expenses Eligible expenses: Licensed day care provider In-home provider as long as the provider is not your child under age 19, or someone you claim as a tax dependent Summer camps (not overnight) Tuition through preschool Before and after school care (under age 13) Ineligible expenses: Tuition expenses for kindergarten and beyond Overnight camps Child care expenses for a child 13 or older (unless disabled) Child care expenses for night-time babysitting Child care expenses while you are on an extended leave of absence Care provided by an older dependent or sibling View a detailed listing of eligible expenses at cornell.payflexdirect.com 8

9 Things to remember You can enroll in an FSA during the annual enrollment period. You can also enroll when you first become eligible. Once you enroll, you may only change your election if you have a change in status (i.e., birth, death, marriage, divorce, change in day care provider). You and/or your spouse do not need to be covered by your employer s health plan to participate in an FSA. Expenses must be for services received, not for services to be provided in the future. Your employer offers the grace period, which allows you additional time to spend your money. (2 ½ months) Your employer also offers a run-out period, which allows you additional time to submit claims for reimbursement. (120 days) FSAs have a use-it-or-lose-it rule. If you have funds left in your FSA at the end of the plan year you will lose them. Plan Year Grace Period last day to spend FSA dollars Run-out period last day to submit claims 1/1/ /31/2014 March 15, 2015 April 30,

10 Getting started is easy with PayFlex Review your expenses from the prior plan year. Use our online planning & education tools. My resources education materials, planning tools, forms and IRS publications Eligible expense items general list of eligible health care and dependent care expenses Savings calculator estimate your health care and dependent care expenses Frequently asked questions helps you understand your FSA Once you know how much you want to contribute for the year, you can figure out how much will be deducted each pay period. 10

11 PayFlex Card Spending made simple. Select. Swipe. Save. What is the PayFlex Card? It is similar to a debit card. You use it to pay for eligible expenses. Generally all you need to do is swipe your card and save your receipt. Benefits of using the card Immediate payment from your account Increases your personal cash flow No claim filing Ease of use Where can I use the card? Physician and dentist offices, vision care providers, and hospitals Grocery stores, discount stores, web-based merchants Drug stores and retail pharmacies who have implemented an IRS-approved system Merchants must accept MasterCard in order for the card to work 11

12 PayFlex Card Spending made simple. Select. Swipe. Save. What can I purchase with the card? Eligible health care expenses such as co-pays, prescriptions, vision and hearing products and certain over-the-counter (OTC) items Things to remember Save all receipts and Explanation of Benefits in case documentation is requested by PayFlex or the IRS. New participants will receive a PayFlex Card via mail in a plain, white envelope during the first week of January. You can order additional cards online for a spouse or dependent at no cost. At cornell.payflexdirect.com, you can view your account balance, card transaction history and any outstanding card transactions requiring documentation. 12

13 Substantiating your card transactions According to IRS guidelines, PayFlex is required to verify that all purchases made with your PayFlex Card are eligible expenses. During the plan year, you may receive a Request for Documentation letter OR see an alert on cornell.payflexdirect.com that states you have a claim requiring substantiation. RRL Process takes place quarterly: February, May, August, & November If you receive a letter, you must respond to keep your PayFlex Card ACTIVE. If you see an alert on cornell.payflexdirect.com, click on Learn More and upload your documentation Common reasons when documentation may be required: The amount of the expense does not match your co-pay. The merchant description provided to PayFlex from the card swipe does not clarify the type of expense. This generally occurs with dental or hospital expenses. 13

14 How to keep your card active If you see an alert message or receive a Request for Documentation letter, you have three options for substantiating your card transactions. Option 1: Send us the documentation for the expense. Upload, fax or mail an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) or itemized receipt for the expense(s) listed in the letter or displayed online. Option 2: Send us another expense. Upload, fax or mail an EOB or receipt for another eligible expense. The amount must be equal to or greater than the amount in question. Option 3: Pay back your account for the amount in question. Send a personal check or money order to PayFlex to cover the amount. Note: If you do not respond, we will suspend your card. Once we receive and process your documentation or payment, your card will be active again. 14

15 Getting reimbursed If you choose not to use your PayFlex Card, you can: 1. Submit a claim online at cornell.payflexdirect.com with Pay Me or Pay Them Pay Me reimburse yourself for out-of-pocket expenses Pay Them pay your provider directly 2.
