Dear Iowa State University Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Participant, Iowa State University will not amend the current Flexible Spending Account (FSA) rules to allow for an extended claims period for 2005. Many administrative and legal issues involving HIPAA, COBRA and FSA claims administration impacted this decision. The existing rule is that any eligible claim must be incurred on or prior to December 31, 2005 to qualify for reimbursement from 2005 fund contributions to your account. Reimbursement requests for eligible claims incurred during the 2005 calendar year must be submitted and received by Wellmark on or prior to March 31, 2006.
If you have any questions regarding Notice 2005-42, please feel free to contact the Benefits Office at 515-294-7680 or via email at email@example.com.
