Annual Election is for HealthFlex Participants only! Those covered by the United Healthcare Group Medicare Advantage PPO plan do not need to take any action: your plans continue.
Annual Election is the time to choose your 2023 HealthFlex benefits. Between Nov. 2-17, 2022, you’ll select your medical, dental and vision coverage, choose which eligible dependents to cover, and elect to contribute to health accounts.
To feel confident with your choices during Annual Election, follow these three easy steps:
Understand your plan options by visiting the new HealthFlex Annual Election webpage
Get personalized recommendations for plans and health account contributions by logging into Benefits Access and clicking the ALEX® Benefits Counselor link
Make your elections* via Benefits Access from Nov. 2-17, 2022
*Be Advised, if you don’t make any elections, your current HealthFlex coverage will continue for 2023. However, any health account contributions you have elected in 2022 will not continue automatically in 2023. You must make new elections.
Just a reminder that you can carry over up to $570 in a health care FSA from 2022 into 2023. Any funds in your FSA above $570 will be forfeited.
You have until December 31, 2022, to spend money in your health care FSA and get under the $570 maximum—and then you have until April 30, 2023, to submit 2022 FSA expenses for reimbursement.
We encourage you to register for Benefits Access so you can easily elect your 2023 benefits online. To register, go to Benefits Access and select “New User Registration.”
If you have trouble registering, contact Wespath Customer Service at 1-800-851-2201. Representatives are available business days from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central Time.
