The Mountaineer Flexible Benefits Plan is sponsored by the Public Employees Insurance Agency. The premiums for the plans, except for the Legal Plan, are pre-tax. Review the Mountaineer Flexible Benefits Plan Booklet each April during Open Enrollment for July 1 changes. Only an IRS “qualifying” family status change allows plan changes during the plan year.
Note: FSA (Flexible Spending Account) is an IRS approved tax-free account that saves you money on eligible medical and dependent care expenses. You authorize per-pay-period deductions from your salary before federal, state, and social security taxes are calculated. As eligible expenses are incurred, you request tax-free withdrawals from your account to reimburse yourself. At the end of the plan year a grace period allows you to incur expenses and submit claims for these expenses.
