Health FSA open enrollment for 2018 continues through October 31

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, October 18 — Open enrollment for the Health Flexible Spending Account Plan (FSA) 2018 benefit year is available for just over two more weeks, concluding on October 31, 2017. It is important to note that members must enroll in the Health FSA every year — FSA enrollment is not automatic each year so interested members should act soon so they do not miss out on enrollment for the 2018 Plan Year.

This important health care benefit was secured by the BLET in the 2012 National Agreement. At least 7.5% of eligible engineers must participate in the FSA Plan in the 2018 Plan Year, and subsequent Plan Years, or the Carriers will have the right to terminate the plan.

Except as noted at the end of this paragraph, locomotive engineers and Tex-Mex train service employees covered by the Health & Welfare portion of the most recent National Agreement, dated January 5, 2012, are eligible to participate in the FSA Plan. The national FSA is distinct and separate from the on-property BNSF FSA Plan. The participation rates identified in this News Flash do not apply to BNSF engineers, and BNSF engineers are not required to participate in the open enrollment described in this News Flash. Also, BLET members subject to the September 16, 2011 UTU National Agreement are currently eligible to participate in the Health FSA program provided for in that Agreement.

To Register

You must enroll online by logging in to the Your Track to Health website:
www.yourtracktohealth.com/

Once logged in, look to the upper-left corner of the screen and select the option to “ENROLL NOW for 2018.” New users may have to complete a brief registration process.

For additional information, please see the BLET News Flash dated September 26, 2017:

Again, open enrollment ends at midnight on Tuesday, October 31, 2017!
