If You Take a Leave of Absence Without Pay
If you take a leave of absence without pay and terminate your PG&E-sponsored medical plan coverage, you will no longer be eligible to participate in the Health Account because eligibility for the Health Account is tied to your enrollment in the Health Account Plan (HAP):
  • If you return to work and are reinstated in the HAP in the same calendar year, your Health Account will also be reinstated at the previous credit balance (awarded credits less claims processed to date).
  • If you do not return to work in the same calendar year, you will forfeit all funds accumulated in your Health Account. Upon returning to work in a different calendar year, a new Health Account will be established with a new credit allocation, but the account will not contain any previously accumulated credit balance from the previous year.
You can submit claims for reimbursement from the Health Account for eligible expenses incurred during the months in which you were an active employee. Claims can be submitted to the processing center until March 31 of the following year.
For more information, please contact the PG&E Benefits Service Center at 866-271-8144 (open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time).
