How does participating in a HealthFund affect my healthcare flexible spending account contributions

Posted by:

As a participant in an HISD medical plan, you can maximize your savings by using a healthcare flexible spending account (FSA) to pay expenses that aren’t covered such as coinsurance amounts. If you’re enrolled in one of the HISD medical plans and choose to contribute to an FSA, you must use your remaining HealthFund dollars first before you can use your FSA dollars. Please note: Effective January 1, 2017, HISD no longer supports the HealthFund. You may continue to use any funds you have left over from previous years to pay for eligible expenses as long as you are enrolled in an HISD medical plan. 

You may check your HealthFund balance at myCigna. You need to register before accessing the system. You can also get your balance by calling Cigna member services.
