  • Run-out Period - You have 3 months after the plan year ends, to submit all outstanding claims for expenses that occurred during the plan year.

    Reimbursement for these expenses must submitted manually through the claim process.

  • Example: If the plan year ends 12/31/12, you have until 3/31/13 to submit manual claims for dates of service that occurred during your 2012 plan year. Do not charge your Choice Strategies card. If you charge your card, it will pull from current plan year funding. The IRS does not allow previous plan year expenses to be paid with current year funding.
