A new benefits plan year may mean new insurance cards. To see if you should be receiving new ones, check the list below.
Cards are mailed to members from the provider. To see the status of your cards or to request additional ones, contact the provider directly; contact information for all vendors is available on the Benefits & Worklife website. Membership cards also can be uploaded from most provider websites.

WEX health care flexible spending account reimbursement card
Cards will be sent to those who newly elected a health care or limited purpose flexible spending account for 2023, and to existing members whose cards have expired; the expiration date (generally on a four-year cycle) is indicated on the card. Note that the card always pulls funds from the current plan year, so starting on Jan. 1, 2023, the card will pull only from 2023 funds. To use funds from your 2022 account before carryover has occurred, you must pay for the eligible expense out of pocket and request reimbursement.
WEX health savings account reimbursement card
