IMPORTANT NEWS:




    ***THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT ELIGIBLE PLAN B EXPENSES FROM LAST FISCAL YEAR (SEPTEMBER 2016 TO AUGUST 2017) IS ***

    ***If you recently received a letter or email saying that you had funds at risk of forfeiture, you must claim all of those funds by in order to avoid the $500 forfeiture.***

    As an example, if you processed a claim in December 2017 for $600 because you were informed you had $1,500 at risk by February 2018, your account will still forfeit $500 unless you claim the remaining $900.

    We strongly suggest that you submit a claim form with eligible expenses from September 2016 to August 2017 as soon as possible because the last day these expenses can be processed is February 28, 2018. Expenses that have been incurred since September 2017 continue to be eligible for reimbursement.

    You can check your Plan B online balance by logging at www.asonet.com.

    You can also use the online portal to submit claims using ASO's link to "Update Info/Upload Claims/Documents to ASO."

    If you do forfeit funds, you will still have access to the remaining funds for use on expenses from September 2017 to present.
