Health Care Spending Account (HCSA)
If you leave state service during the FSA plan year, your participation in the HCSA will terminate as of midnight on the last date of your active employment. Your Health Care Spending Account debit cards will be deactivated, and you will only be able to submit claims for eligible health care expenses that were incurred on or before your last day of active employment.
You have until October 15 to submit claims for the Plan Year expenses. In order to use your HCSA account after you terminate state service, you may elect to continue to contribute to the HCSA account under COBRA by making direct payments on an after-tax basis. Your eligibility for HCSA COBRA will be determined by the plan administrator, ASIFlex. The amount billed to you by ASIFlex will include a 2% adminstrative fee.
