Brighton Campus Open Enrollment Fair, Oct. 29th: Medical, Dental & Flexible Spending Accounts

Excellus and Human Resources staff members will be on hand from 9 a.m. to noon in the Bright Campus Warshof Campus Center Empire Room to answer questions and to provide and process enrollment forms.  Open Enrollment will run from October 29th through November 30th.  We will be on the Damon City Campus on November 3rd from 10 a.m. to noon in the Human Resources Office.

Note: If you do not wish to make any changes to your medical or dental coverage, you do not need to do anything; your plan(s) will remain the same for 2016.  If you are interested in a Flexible Spending Account, now is the time to enroll for a 2016 Flexible Spending Account (FSA).  Don’t wait until the busy end of your semester and the rush of the holidays to enroll!

An FSA form must be completed each year to participate – deadline for the form is November 30th. Enrolling allows you to create an FSA for medical and/or child care expenses on a pre-tax basis as permitted by law.  Current law permits a maximum of $2,550 for qualifying unreimbursed medical and dental expenses and a maximum of $5,000 for dependent child care expenses.  Flyers are attached to explain the benefits of an FSA and how they work as well as a listing qualifying expenses.

Looking forward to assisting you during Open Enrollment!
