How Health Care Flexible Spending Accounts (HCFSAs) and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (DCFSAs) Work
Eligibility, Enrollment and Administration
You are eligible to enroll in the flexible spending accounts (FSAs) only during very specific times:
  • When you are first hired,
  • When you enroll during Open Enrollment each year, or
  • When you have an eligible mid-year change-in-status event (see "Change-in-Status Events" in the What If… section).
You set up your FSA(s) by designating an annual contribution amount when you enroll.
You are not eligible for FSA benefits if you are a contract or agency worker, employee receiving long-term disability benefits, hiring hall employee, or retired employee. Intermittent employees and other temporary employees who are not expected to become regular employees are also not eligible for coverage.
Claims Administrator
The Health Care Flexible Spending Accounts (HCFSAs) and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (DCFSAs) are administered by a third-party claims administrator:
  • Your Spending Account (YSA) if you are an Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) member or if you have waived PG&E-sponsored medical coverage, or
  • Kaiser Health Payment Services if you are a Kaiser Permanente (KPIC) member.
If you have any questions about the Plan, IRS rules, or your claims, you may contact:
If you are an Anthem member or you have waived PG&E-sponsored medical coverage
If you are a KPIC member
