Plan your deductions carefully.  Money left in the account at the end of the year is forfeited (commonly known as the “use it or lose it” provision).  While you have 60 days from the end of the plan year to submit your expenses, we encourage you to submit your claims for reimbursement as soon as possible, as there is not an extended grace period (EGP). 

 

Please note:  Only those employees new to BRI will receive a new Beniversal MasterCard.  Those who already have an account with BRI will NOT receive a new Beniversal MasterCard, so please keep and continue to use your card.

 

If you leave employment with the District at any time during the plan year, only expenses that were incurred during your employment period will be honored.  Claims for reimbursement must be submitted within 60 days from your separation of service with the District.

To get started, you will need to register (only if new to BRI) with your Company Code (bcs1) and Member ID (Social Security #)

 

Time to enroll is limited.

Please note:

** Guidance from Excellus came out in 2017 regarding retirement no longer being a qualified event. If you believe that you are going to retire anytime between January 2, 2020 and December 31, 2020 and do not currently have health insurance with the district, but plan on picking it up in retirement, please consider enrolling now. If you do not enroll now, and you decide to retire on within that time frame, you will have to wait until next year’s open enrollment to pick up health insurance.

 

 

 

*For those employees who are not eligible for medical and dental insurance and are actively working, you may choose to purchase the SB Bronze coverage, and P&A Group will bill you directly.  You may also go to the NYS Marketplace.  Please contact me for an application should you choose the direct bill SB Bronze coverage or to find our more information.
