  • Reimbursement Request Tips

The following are a few helpful tips to keep in mind before filing your reimbursement request:

  • If you are terminating employment, all qualifying Flexible Benefits expenses (medical, dependent care, transportation, parking) must have dates of service on or before your last day of employment (not the date of your final paycheck or the date your insurance coverage terminates).
  • Please indicate the plan year on your medical and dependent reimbursement form.  This will ensure that claims filed after January 1, 2012 are being reimbursed from the correct plan year.
  • When filing your reimbursement request, please send itemized statements to accompany receipts.  A receipt alone will not indicate certain fees or other items that may not be reimbursable under your Flexible Spending Account.
  • Canceled checks and/or bank statements cannot be accepted as proof of payment for any type of expense.
  • Please do not highlight receipts that will be copied or faxed.  Many times this makes the highlighted item too dark to be legible.
  • Please fill out forms completely.  We cannot process forms if they have "see attached" with no description on the reimbursement form.
  • As of January 1, 2011, over-the-counter items can only be approved with a prescription per IRS regulation.
  • When completing the Edison ID field on the reimbursement form, remember that your Edison ID number is not your Edison login information.  Your Edison ID number will begin with two leading zeros.
  • The reimbursement forms are revised each year; please ensure you are using the most recent version of the reimbursement form.
  • When claiming your total deductible amount for the year, please provide an itemized list of all services provided (rather than an EOB with a summary).  Some amounts included in the summary may include items that are not covered under your Flexible Spending Account.
  • Remember that the typical turnaround time for reimbursements is 7-10 business days.
