Dependent Eligibility - Dependent age for medical insurance is the end of the calendar year in which your dependent turns 26 if a tax dependent. Dependents no longer have to be full-time students if over the age of 19.

In-Network and Out-of-Network Providers
It is important to always make sure your provider is in the Blue Access (PPO) network because you will receive a higher level of benefit . Providers in our network have agreed to charge a reduced, negotiated fee for their services. Our coverage is national and you can find an in-network provider even while traveling.

Out-of-Network: Our plans have benefits at a reduced level when you receive care from out-of-network providers. Please keep in mind that you have to meet your out-of-network deductible before the plan will pay. Even if you've met your deductible with an in-network provider, you have to meet it again with an out-of-network provider. You will also be billed for charges in excess of the Usual & Reasonable reimbursement paid by the plan. Prior-authorization is required for all out-of-network services.

Emergency Visits: Our plan will pay in-network benefits when you need care for an emergency. However, even in an emergency, out-of-network providers may bill you for their charges in excess of the Usual & Reasonable reimbursement paid by the plan. You will be responsible for the excess charges.

Referrals: With our PPO plans, you don't need a referral to see a specialist. However, you want to make sure the specialist is in the network. There are times when an in-network provider will refer you to a specialist. A referral from your doctor does not mean that the provider is in-network. It is always the patient's responsibility to verify the network status of a referred physician or facility.

AmeriFLEX Member Service Center  - no login required


Our flexible spending plan is designed to save tax dollars when you pay for certain IRS-eligible expenses. When you elect to contribute to flexible spending, the contributions are not subject to federal, state, local, or FICA taxes. This can mean substantial savings to you.

Debit Card

The annual amount you choose to contribute is loaded onto a convenient debit card that has the MasterCard logo. You can use it to pay for office visit co-pays, prescription co-pays, vision expenses, deductibles and other IRS-eligible expenses. The debit card eliminates paying out-of-pocket expenses as the funds are deducted directly from your FSA account. It also significantly reduces manual paper claim submission and eliminates waiting for reimbursement checks.

Other Points to Remember

  • In order to be reimbursed from your account, the expenses you claim must be eligible under IRS regulations - you are responsible for keeping receipts in case you are audited.
  • Butler does not have a grace period - All expenses must be incurred between January 1 and December 31, 2014. Claims can be submitted up until March 31, 2015, but the expense must be incurred in the plan year.
  • Unused 2014 flexible spending contributions are forfeited per IRS regulations. They cannot be "rolled over" into the next plan year.
  • You do not have to be enrolled in a medical, dental or vision plan to participate.
  • Contributions are elected on an annual calendar year basis. Annual elections cannot be changed during the year unless you experience an IRS-defined change of status.
  • We have two flexible spending accounts, Medical and Dependent Care. You may elect to participate in either or both of them.
  • The minimum amount you can flex per year is $120. The maximum amount is $2,500.

Dependent Care Expenses:  

In general, the following rules apply to dependent care expenses:

  • The expenses must be employment-related expenses for the care of a dependent of the employee who is under age 13 and entitled to a dependent deduction under Internal Revenue Service Code Section 151(e) or a dependent that is physically or mentally incapable of caring for himself or herself.
  • The total amount claimed under the plan for any coverage period must not exceed the lesser of your earned income for the plan year or the earned income of your spouse. If your spouse is either a full-time student or is capable of taking care of him or herself, then he or she is deemed to have monthly earnings of $200 if there is one (1) child or dependent, and $400 if there are two (s) or more.
  • No payment may be made under the plan if the service provider is your dependent for federal income tax purposes or if your child or stepchild who is under age 19.
  • If the services are provided by a dependent care center, the center must comply with all state and local laws and must provide care for more than six (6) individuals who are not a resident of the facility.
  • The total amount reimbursed cannot exceed the actual paid into the account.

Eligibility Changes ~ Show More

Mid-year Changes - IRS regulations require that benefit elections remain in place for the entire year unless you experience an IRS-defined change in status. A change in status, such as marriage, divorce, or the birth of a child, allows you to make a change to your elections as long as it is within 30 days of the event. Please notify HR if you qualify to make a mid-year change.

Duty to notify of ineligibility - the employee is responsible for notifying HR within 30 days of any change that affects a dependent's eligibility. For example, you must notify HR if your dependent gets married, obtains health insurance through employment, or is no longer a tax dependent.

  • For life insurance, dental and vision you must provide notification when your dependent reaches the age limit.
  • Dependents will automatically be terminated in Anthem's system when a dependent reaches the age limit for medical. You must still notify HR in order to change your benefit deductions.

What are Tuition Remission and Tuition Exchange?  (PPT)

Tuition Exchange Universities/Colleges -

* While Butler University participates in the tuition exchange program, The Tuition Exchange website is managed by the Tuition Exchange organization. Butler University has no involvement or control over the colleges and accuracy of data listed on the website. Be sure to confirm all information with the institution of interest. Schools must remain on the list of participating members because they still have students on their program - schools cannot withdraw completely until all scholarships have been completed, all bills have been paid and they are in balance with the number of imports and exports. Many schools, not just withdrawing schools, decide from year to year not to accept imports or not to send out exports - schools are not required to send out or bring in students under our program.
