    Unused HRA Funds

    Any unused HRA funds roll over year after year while you are covered under a medical plan through Via Benefits. Any HRA funds are forfeited when your coverage through Via Benefits ends. The HRA is funded and owned by UC for your benefit. Funds from an HRA could not be transferred or bequeathed as a result of death.

    Changes resulting from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was signed into law on March 27, 2020

    The CARES Act is a part of the $2 trillion stimulus package aimed at providing additional relief during the coronavirus pandemic. The CARES Act includes important provisions for users of Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs), specifically:

    • Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and medications not prescribed by a physician can now be reimbursed pre-tax.
    • Menstrual care products are also now considered eligible expenses.
    • The changes to eligible expenses are retroactively effective January 1, 2020.

    Your HRA is now being administered consistent with these changes to approve all OTC medications.

    Are you already receiving a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) and considering changing your Plan?

    If you are considering changing your coverage and want to maintain your HRA contact Via Benefits to work with a licensed benefit advisor who will help you evaluate and enroll in new Medicare coverage that meets your needs and budget. To continue qualifying for funding, you must maintain certain Medicare coverage through Via Benefits.

    For example, Martin is a retiree who gets a monthly allowance from his former employer in the form of an HRA. His neighbor is an insurance salesperson who told him that another plan exists that might be able to save him money. Martin’s considering switching. However, if he does so, he will lose his HRA. It’s important to get in touch with Via Benefits if you would like to change your health plans so that you maintain your funding account.
