Reminders for 2020 

Medical Plan Opt-Out Waivers

To comply with IRS reporting for the Affordable Care Act, employees who opt out of USF's medical plan are required to waive coverage annually during Open Enrollment through USFWorks. To determine if you are eligible for this waiver, please review the Medical Plan Opt-Out Waiver section of the benefits guide.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) require annual re-enrollment should you wish to continue these benefits for the upcoming plan year. The 2019 maximum annual election amounts are $2,650 per employee for the Healthcare FSA and $5,000 per household for the Dependent Care FSA.

Childcare Subsidy

A new childcare subsidy form must be submitted online for each year that the benefit is requested. For more information, view the childcare subsidy section of the benefits guide.
