2017 Flexible Spending Accounts Update

If you are a benefits-eligible employee who is enrolled in a 2017 flexible spending account, you may have recently received a Welcome email from MyCafeteriaPlan.  The email outreach effort sent by Middlebury’s new FSA service, MyCafeteriaPlan, provided by Business Plans Inc.  You may access your online portal to your flex account(s) via the instructions in that email. Once logged on to the portal, you will be prompted to update your username and password by following the instructions available at this link: http://www.middlebury.edu/system/files/new_user_login_information_extended.pdf. You may also update your profile with your preferred contact information, such as  a personal email address or physical mailing address. Or you may leave your profile as is, and receive correspondence on your work email account. The portal also gives you access to your account balances, transaction history and an option to submit your claims electronically.

Accessing the flexible spending portal at MyCafeteriaPlan.com is an enhanced service, which many employees may find useful. But if you prefer to not log on, you will still be able to utilize your ‘Benny’ card and/or submit claims utilizing the claim form that is available for download on Middlebury’s website at this link: http://www.middlebury.edu/system/files/media/Claim%20Form_FSA%20Flex.pdf

If you have questions about your 2017 flexible spendng account, feel free to reach out to customer service at MyCafeteriaPlan at (937) 865-6500 or toll free at (800) 865-6543.  You may also contact Nancy Lindberg or Franklin Daniel in Human Resources at 802-443-3372.

2016  Flexible Spending Accounts Reminder

If you participated in a flexible spending account in 2016 and still have a remaining balance, you have until March 15, 2017 to seek reimbursement for dates of service which occurred in 2016.  While at this point in time you can no longer use your 2016 benefits debit card for claims, you may file your claims by using a paper claim form and submitting it via mail, fax or via electronic upload.  Here is a link to the 2016 CBA FSA claim form: http://www.middlebury.edu/media/view/170601/original/CBA_Blue_Flex_Claim_Form.pdf

Here is a link to the site for uploading your 2016 FSA claims: https://secure.cbabluevt.com/electronic-submission.aspx?app=reimbursement

After March 15th, remaining 2016 Health FSA balances, up to a maximum of $500 will be rolled over to your 2017 Health FSA account.
