COVERAGE/Payment information FOR ALL PLANS
- Coverage period: Monthly, running from the first to the last of the month. Coverage will begin on the first of the month following 60 days of employment, unless completed during open enrollment when coverage will begin on 1/1.
- Deductions for FSA and Qualified Transportation: Weekly payroll deduction based on the amount you determined. Amounts for Qualified Transportation can be changed on the first of the month by contacting payroll@CorpsTeam.com. Deductions for FSA accounts can’t be changed once they are setup until next open enrollment period or qualifying life event.
- Pre–Tax Deduction: All plans are being offered pre-tax, allowing you to pay your premiums with before-tax money. This results in a reduction of your taxable wages. Because plans are pre-tax, employees can only withdraw if there is a qualifying life event or during the next open annual open enrollment.
- FSA Claims: All claims must be incurred while an employee of Corps Team. You will have up to 60 days after the date of service to file a claim, but the plan will only pay for claims incurred while you were employed. For example – If you were employed from January 1 through March 15th (11 weeks) and you contributed $20 per week to the Healthcare FSA you would have accrued $220 into the FSA by your end date. You will be able to spend that money on any claim that occurred between January 1 and March 15th (your last day of employment). You will be able to file the claim up to 60 days after March 15th, but all claims must have dates of service that match your dates of employment. This policy is the same for either of the FSA’s or Qualified Transportation plans. Any unspent funds will be forfeited, except for the Health Care FSA which allows for a $640 carryover of unspent funds from 2024 into 2025.
- Transportation Claims: The only difference from the above description of FSA claims is that for Transportation claims you will have 180 days to submit a claim.
