Important Information Regarding Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA) Plan and Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA) Plan

The Health Care Reimbursement Account is a voluntary benefit for eligible employees that offers significant tax advantages and could increase an employee's take home pay. The program allows for the reimbursement of out-of-pocket health expenses from money deducted from an employee's paycheck before federal, state, and FICA taxes are deducted. Taxable income on an employee's annual W-2 statement will be reduced by the amount placed in the account.

Expenses eligible to be reimbursed from the Health Care Reimbursement Account are expenses incurred by an employee, employee's spouse, and dependents (including domestic partner) for the diagnosis, cure, treatment or prevention of disease, and for treatments affecting any part or function of the body. The expenses must be to alleviate or prevent a physical defect or illness. Expenses solely for cosmetic reasons or expenses that are merely beneficial to a person's general health are not reimbursable. 
For a complete listing of what is and eligible expense, and what is not an eligible expense, please refer to the HCRA brochure or ASI’s website.

Employees may contribute any amount from a minimum of $20 per month to a maximum of $208.33 a month ($2,500 annual maximum), and an after-tax administration fee is deducted from each monthly pay warrant in which a contribution is taken.

*Any money left in employee's account after expenses have been paid for the year is forfeited.

*Employee must re-enroll during the annual open enrollment period each fall to participate during following calendar year. Contribution amount may be changed at that time.
