Flexible Spening Account Blackout Period March 14-22

Ohio State’s Flexible Spending Account (FSA) vendor, TASC, will transition to a new system platform during March 2016. The transition will include a short blackout period affecting claims processing for faculty and staff with Health Care and Dependent Care FSA accounts.

During the blackout period, March 14-22, 2016, faculty and staff cannot submit claims for reimbursement, use their Health Care Flex Cards or use their FSA accounts online.

Should participants incur eligible expenses during the blackout period, faculty and staff should pay for the expenses and submit a claim after March 22 to be reimbursed after the transition period.

As of March 23, 2016, all current FSA participant information will be transferred to TASC’s new system. OHR will send a direct email and a postcard to all Health Care FSA and Dependent Care FSA participants in early March regarding this transition.

What you need to do:

  • Direct affected faculty and staff to go.osu.edu/MyFSA for additional information.
