If you have an active Beniversal Card at the time of the rollover, funds will be available on the card.
Do I have to enroll in a Medical FSA in the next plan year to access my current plan year rollover funds?
No. If you are eligible to enroll in a Medical FSA in the next plan year and decide not to, you are still eligible to rollover funds into the new year. These can be used to reimburse eligible medical expenses once the funds are available.
If I have rollover funds from the previous plan year, can I still elect the maximum tax-free Medical FSA amount as set in my plan for the current plan year?
Yes. The amount of your rollover does not affect the amount that you can elect for your current plan year Medical FSA. (e.g. If you have a maximum election limit of $2,000 and a maximum rollover of $500, you could have access to up to $2,500 for the next plan year.)
The minimum Medical FSA amount that you can rollover is designated in your Plan Highlights. Any funds that do not rollover are forfeited.
