SPECIAL RESERVE FLEX FUND IN 2018-19

Your Trustees have again approved a Special Reserve Flex Fund for 2018-19 for both Active and Retired members.  The continuation of this fund will be reviewed on an annual basis. Any unreimbursed health claims you incur may be reimbursed through the Special Reserve Flex Fund if incurred between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019. The refund will be in FULL for the FIRST $ 100 in approved claims and ONE DOLLAR ( $1) PER CLAIM after that for any subsequent claims that are submitted. Dental and vision claims may also be submitted under this account. Vouchers will be issued by May 1, 2019, and are to be returned by June 1, 2019.

The claim form for the special flex fund can be found here.

TRUST ANNUAL FLEX FUND

Those having funds available in the Annual Trust Flex Fund will receive their voucher by May 1st. The response will be due by June 1, 2019.  If there is an issue delaying your response please contact the Trust Administrator.  This Annual Flex Fund is for those that had additional  Non-Teacher Unit Funding beyond that required to fund the basic Trust Fund Plans and had not used it for the buy-up of additional coverage. This does not apply to the NPUT, except for some staff employed less than half-time.  These claims will be forwarded to Preferred Group Plans for review and issuing of payments.
