The FSA Medical Reimbursement Plan

The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows you to pay for eligible medical, Rx, dental, and vision expenses with contributions taken from your pay on a pre-tax basis. Eligible expenses include copays, coinsurance amounts, deductibles and other approved out-of-pocket expenses as outlined in the Summary Plan Description. You may elect up to $2,750 per plan year. Employee communications, customer service and reimbursement are all handled directly by Tristar. Enrollment must be made within 31 days of initial eligibility or during Open Enrollment. Our FSA accounts are on a July 1 to June 30th plan year. 

To submit for reimbursement, you can either complete an FSA Medical Reimbursement Claim Form and mail to Tristar or submit medical claims online at www.myrsc.com. If you do not have a user name and password, please contact Tristar directly at 1.800.456.4584. The user name and password is not the same one as your Employee Self Service log-in.

The Dependent Care Plan allows you to pay for eligible child and dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis. This plan is separate from the medical reimbursement plan. Contributions must be set aside specifically for the purpose of paying for eligible out-of-pocket dependent care expenses. You may elect any amount up to the legal limit of $5,000 per year (married persons filing separately are limited to $2,500). Enrollment must be made within 31 days of initial eligibility or during Open Enrollment.
