Flex Plan Information

This year we will be moving to a new vendor, WEX. You are required to fill out a new Flex Enrollment Form for the plan year that starts July 1, 2021 and ends June 30, 2022. If you do not fill out a flex form for the new plan year, you will not be enrolled with the Flexible Spending Account for the 2021 – 2022 plan year.

ALL ENROLLMENT FORMS MUST BE RETURNED TO THE HR OFFICE BY MAY 31
If you do not submit your Benefit Information Enrollment Form or Flex Enrollment Form by May 31 Human Resources will assume that you have no change in your medical, dental, or vision coverage, and will have no Flex plan benefits. Please note that this is the only time you can make changes to your insurance coverage, other than through a qualifying event.
