Flexible Spending Accounts & Health Savings Accounts
Flexible Spending Accounts
Our flexible spending plan continues to be managed by LD&B Benefits Administrators located in Harrisonburg, VA. Employees now have use of a LD&B benefit card. This card acts much like a debit card tied directly to your flexible spending accounts. When presented at your doctor's office and pharmacy, your medical charges are automatically deducted from your designated healthcare flexible spending balance. If you currently participate in flexible spending, you should retain your LD&B Benefit Card for use in the new plan year.
Another feature of LD&B is that you will have immediate access to your account balances online through the LD&B website. Upon enrollment into the flexible spending plan, employees will be issued a PIN number that will allow access to submit claims and view balances. For more information regarding flexible spending accounts, please take time to view our Flex Benefits Enrollment Kit.
The College will continue to allow employees to roll over any remaining balance up to $550 for the 2021 plan year. You will continue to have a three-month run out period after the end of the plan year (December 31, 2020) in order to file your claims for 2020. Any remaining funds from your 2020 election (up to the $550 limit), will be included in your 2021 available balance. Roll over funds are only available for health care expenses.
