HSA

chevron_down

Sysco will contribute to your HSA account up front to get you started. Sysco will automatically contribute $250 if you select Associate Only coverage or $500 if you cover other family members. Then, you can make pre-tax contributions from your paycheck to build your savings to pay for healthcare now or in the future. If you have not opened your account already, be sure to complete the activation of your HSA to fully open your account.

No. To be eligible to open an HSA, you must be enrolled in the Sysco HSA medical plan. This is an IRS regulation. In addition, you cannot:

  • Be enrolled in Medicare
  • ‍Receive health benefits under Tricare
  • ‍Have received Veteran’s Administration benefits in the last three months
  • ‍Be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax returns
  • Use a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA); only a Limited Use FSA is permitted

During benefits enrollment you will select the amount you would like to contribute to your HSA, up to the 2019 IRS limit of $3,500 for individuals and $7,000 for families. The amount you choose will then be deducted from your paychecks. If you already contribute to the HSA in 2018, your election amount will carry forward to 2019.

Yes. Any contributions made by Sysco are counted toward your annual IRS limit on the HSA contribution amount.

Fidelity administers the HSA plan. They offer easy access to your account and excellent customer service. Once you’ve set up your account, you may contact Fidelity to ask about investment options.

You cannot have a traditional health care FSA; however, you can have a Limited Use FSA. A Limited Use FSA is used to pay for out-of-pocket dental and vision expenses only.

The primary difference between a Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and a Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) is that money contributed to an HSA carries forward to the following year if unused. In contrast, FSAs are “use it or lose it”. Also, in order to take advantage of the HSA you need to be enrolled in the Sysco HSA medical plan.

You should maintain records and keep your receipts in case the IRS would audit your account and spending.

If you should leave Sysco or choose another medical plan in the future, the money in the account is yours to keep.

No. An HSA is not a use it or lose it account like an FSA. One of the advantages of an HSA is that any used money at the end of the year carries forward to the next year and beyond.

chevron_down

The Limited Use FSA gives you an extra pre-tax savings option. However, it’s important to note that the Limited Use FSA can only be used for dental and vision expenses and is only for those associates enrolled in the HSA medical plan.

For participants in Flexible Spending Accounts, we advise to contribute conservatively, especially at first because it is a use it or lose it model. For associates contributing to the HSA, any money that remains in your account at the end of the year, carries forward to the next year. This means that you don’t have to worry about losing any money from year to year.

The 2018 Wellness Rewards Program window ended on November 1, 2017. If you and your spouse completed the requirements by November 1, 2017, and earned your Wellness Reward for 2018, your reward will be deposited in your healthcare expense account in January 2018! Don’t be concerned if your Wellness Reward amount is not displayed in the enrollment system on the Total Rewards Café in 2017. Your 2018 Wellness Reward amount will not appear in the system until January 2018.

Please note: If you and your spouse completed the requirements early — by October 1, 2017 — and did not choose to receive your reward a different way during 2018 Benefits Enrollment, you will receive your reward as a credit to the medical plan premium taken from your paycheck each pay period in 2018. 

Watch for information about the 2019 Wellness Rewards Program coming soon!
