Dependent Care Reimbursements for FSA

Flexible Spending Benefits for Dependent Care Reimbursements

Prince William County Public Schools offered the “mySourceCard” debit card as a part of the Flexible Spending Health Care Reimbursement Program for the Plan Year beginning July 1, 2015.  As a point of clarification, Dependent Care expenses are not an allowable expense for the debit card.  Our plan does not allow these expenses to be processed via the mySourceCard.  The mySourceCard allows you to pay for Health Care Reimbursement expenses with the swipe of a card!
If you have questions on claim processing and eligible expenses, contact Sheakley at 800-877-6630 or email:  Directions on claim processing are available on the Benefits Web Page.

It is essential to understand that the use-it-or-lose-it rule still exists, but the extension greatly softens the blow by allowing you more time to use your unspent FSA balances.You have until September 15, 2015 to INCUR qualified health care expenses to exhaust your 2014-2015 plan year balance.

Flexible Spending Health Care Reimbursement Plan
mySourceCard” Debit Card Issued for 2015 Plan Year
Prince William County Public Schools is excited to offer the “mySourceCard” debit card as a part of the Flexible Spending Health Care Reimbursement Program for the plan year beginning July 1, 2015.  The mySourceCard was introduced during Open Enrollment and we have received lots of positive feedback regarding this enhancement to the Flexible Spending Health Care Reimbursement Program.  Participants in the Flexible Spending Program received an email directly from MyRSC this week detailing the use and parameters of the mySourceCard.  As a point of clarification, Dependent Care expenses (child daycare) will not be an allowable expense via the mySourceCard.  Although the attachment to the MyRSC email does reference Dependent Care expenses, our plan does not allow these expenses to be processed via the mySourceCard.  The mySourceCard allows you to pay for Health Care Reimbursement expenses for yourself and your dependent family members with the swipe of a card!

The mySourceCard MasterCard® Debit Card Virtually Eliminates:

  • Out-of-Pocket Expenses
  • Claim Forms
  • Reimbursement Checks
Through the use of a benefit linked debit card, employees will have easier access to the funds set aside in their employer-sponsored benefit accounts simply by swiping the mySourceCard at the point of sale.

This MasterCard debit card transfers funds from employee benefit accounts directly to qualified providers with no out-of-pocket cost and no need to file a claim for reimbursement.
The mySourceCard can be used at any qualified service provider that accepts MasterCard. Additionally, the mySourceCard will be accepted at merchant locations using the Inventory Information Approval System (IIAS). Participants may use the mySourceCard for eligible health care expenses such as medical deductibles, copayments not covered by a health plan, prescriptions, dental and vision expenses. Please also keep your receipts for verification if contacted by Sheakley to audit expenses charged to your card.

The mySourceCard card will be mailed to your home address.  Look for it in your home mailbox around June 25, 2015.  If you will require a second card you may request one using this form .  Please fax your completed form to Sheakley, the plan administrator, at 513-326-8082.  You will not be charged for your first and second card.  Additional cards will require you to pay a fee per card.   You may use the card as of July 1, 2015 for expenses for the 2015 Plan Year (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016).  Please contact Sheakley, at 1-800-877-6630, with any questions.
