Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

If you happen to have a district-funded Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), many answers can be found on the Benefit Resource Inc. (BRI) website www.benefitresource.com.  There you'll find FAQs, HRA claim information, and our plan highlights.

Still looking for district-specific answers?  Below are some FAQs that you may find helpful. 

What happens to any amount left in my HRA that I do not use by the end of the plan year?

Unlike a Flex Spending Account (FSA), any money that you do not use by the end of the plan year rolls over into the next plan year if you are still employed with the district and/or retired and benefit-eligible. 


What happens if I become ineligible to participate or retire during the plan year?

Should you retire and are benefit-eligible, your HRA money may continue to be used.  Sometimes, depending on your CBA/union, you may even continue to be funded.  Please refer to your contract language for current information.

Should you become ineligible (no longer in an HRA-sponsored plan), you may be able to utilize those funds still and/or they the account may switch to a "Limited HRA."  Contact Dawn McAvoy in the Human Resources office for more specific information.

You may also refer to your Plan Highlights regarding the status of your HRA if you become ineligible or retire during the plan year.

What if I lose my card or need another one?

To minimize unauthorized use of your card, be sure to report a lost card immediately by calling Benefit Resource at (800) 473-9595 or logging on to BRiWeb and clicking “View Card Status.” You can request replacement cards through the same process. (There is a fee associated with card replacement. Fee details are available in the Cardholder Agreement. A third party may opt to pay this fee on your behalf.)
