Click on the maroon button that says “Login.” Select “Participants,” you will be taken you to the login page for your account.
You may need to Register an Account!
For enhanced security and streamlined account login ongoing, you will be required to use a custom Login ID for the BRiWeb Participant site.

Starting a Claim
Now that you are logged into BRiWeb, you can submit a claim for any of the accounts that you are enrolled in by clicking “Submit Claims/Receipts” from the left-hand Navigation Menu.
From the Submit Claims/Receipts page, click the “Start Claim” button that corresponds with the plan type you wish to submit a claim against.
The Claims Process
Prior to entering your claim information, review your contact information to ensure that it is up-to-date and edit, if necessary. If you do not have a direct deposit account set up, the reimbursement check will be mailed to the address that is listed here.
The Claim Item(s) section allows you to enter multiple claims at the same time. Each request contains a few important pieces of information: the name of the service provider, what type of service and the services rendered, the date of service, and the amount being claimed. Once you have entered the required information in the Claim Item(s) section, click “Save”.
Note: If you have a balance remaining from the prior plan year, be sure to select the option to have your claim reimbursed with these funds. If this option is not selected, reimbursements will be processed from your current plan year balance.
To include other eligible expenses in your reimbursement request, click “Add Another Claim” and repeat the previous step.
To upload receipts for each of the items or services that you are claiming, click “Choose File” from the Attachment(s) section. Once the file is selected from your device, click “Save”.
Click “Add Another Attachment” to repeat the steps of attaching another receipt. Then click “Continue”.
That’s it! You have completed the steps to successfully submit your claim!
