Pre-tax Expense Accounts Reminder

Reimbursements from the Health Care and Dependent Care Pre-Tax Expense Accounts for the Plan Year July 1, 2001 to June 30, 2002 can be submitted until September 30, 2002, to Eastern Benefit Systems, Inc. (EBS) at the following address:

Eastern Benefit Systems, Inc.
Attn: University of Pennsylvania FSA Unit
100 Freeway Drive East
East Orange, NJ 07018

These reimbursements are based on receipts for expenses incurred between July 1, 2001 and June 30, 2002. Expenses are considered incurred on the day the service is provided, not when you are billed or when the providers are paid. Keep in mind that for services partially covered by a health plan, you must submit an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) along with your reimbursement request. If you have not received your EOB from your provider by the September 30 deadline, you must still file your claim by September 30, and then forward the EOB when you receive it. Note on your claim form that you are waiting for your EOB. If you have any questions, please contact EBS at 1-888-736-6359.

Reimbursement requests for expenses incurred July 1, 2002 or after should be submitted to ADP, the new administrator. Requests can be sent via fax or mail, as listed below:

ADP Claims Processing
P.O. Box 1853
Alpharetta, GA 30023-1853
