HCRA/DCRA Flexible Spending Plans Claim Submission Deadline: Jun. 30, 2013

To all CSUSM HCRA/DCRA Flexible Spending Plan Participants:

This is a reminder that the deadline for participants in the Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA) and/or Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA) Flexible Spending Plans to submit claims for expenses incurred in the 2012 Plan year is Jun. 30, 2013.

After Jun. 30, 2013, all unused 2012 HCRA/DCRA account balances will be forfeited, per IRS regulations.

If you have any remaining 2012 HCRA/DCRA balances and have eligible medical and/or dependent care expenses incurred in the 2012 plan year that you have not submitted a claim to ASI for reimbursement, please do so immediately.

Note: If you were enrolled in HCRA and/or DCRA through Dec. 31, 2012, and had a remaining account balance, you can also file claims for reimbursement under the grace period extension for any eligible expenses that are incurred Jan. 1, 2013 through Mar. 15, 2013.

Under the grace period extension, some HCRA and/or DCRA claims for services incurred Jan. 1, 2013 through Mar. 15, 2013 may be processed against the 2012 plan year first if there is an account balance remaining after Dec. 31, 2012, and filed by the claims filing deadline.
