SouthFlex - Flexible Spending Account Plans

Enrollment Information

In 2022, Health Equity Inc. will provide claims administration for SouthFlex Flexible Spending Accounts. We will offer the Visa® Reimbursement Account Debit Card. When you incur a qualified medical expense, you will be able to pay with the HealthEquity® Visa® Reimbursement Account Card or submit the expense through the online tool for reimbursement. It is important to remember to save all receipts as you may need them for reimbursements and to possibly validate your expenses.

In order to participate in SouthFlex, you must enroll each year.  Even if you are currently enrolled in SouthFlex, you must submit a new enrollment form to participate in the 2022 plan year. The deadline to enroll is Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.

The maximum dollar limitation on voluntary employee salary reductions for contributions to Health care flexible spending accounts for 2022 is $2,850.

The maximum annual employee salary reduction contribution allowed for the Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account remains at $5,000 or $2,500 for married taxpayers filing separate returns.

If you are a current participant with a health or dependent care account balance at the end of the 2021 calendar year, please remember that the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 included provisions which were adopted by the Plan that extends the grace period for 2021 Health FSA accounts from March 15, 2022, to December 31, 2022; and for Dependent Care FSA accounts from December 31, 2021, to December 31, 2022.
