Anyone who is considering or is already covered by an Exchange or Individual Policy should review this information first.
There were no changes to the Affordable Care Act ("ACA") with respect to how it affects the Flex Plan for 2015. Therefore, you still cannot use employer contributions for an Exchange or Individual Policy. In addition, if you or your dependents are not covered by a group insurance contract, the employer monies cannot be used for reimbursement of out-of-pocket medical expenses. Your group insurance may be any group policy, it does not have to be a Flex Plan group policy. For more information please review our Frequently Asked Questions on this topic at www.flexplan.com/aca
New Claims Reimbursement Status Option Once you have logged in to your account, in the "Claims Reimbursement" section, there is a new option titled, "Claims Reimbursement Status." This option will allow you to view the Evidence of Processed Claim (EOPC) for all claims previously submitted and provide an up to the minute status on the processing of your claims. If the claim has been paid, the check number and date will be displayed. If the claim has not been paid, the system will show the projected payout date. We hope you find this new feature helpful.

Need to make a Self Payment?
You may make a payment after you log-in by clicking on "Self Payment Information". You can also make a payment through our Automated Member Services System, Option 2.
Fax or Email transmission of combined documents
If a claim is faxed or emailed, each fax or email transmission should contain only 1 claim form and the supporting documentation for that claim. Remember: All documents sent via email must be a SINGLE FILE, PDF or TIF/TIFF document.
When documents are combined and transmitted together, this will delay the processing of your claim by up to 7-10 days.
Email Validation Procedure
If you have not enrolled on-line, the first time you log in you will be asked to provide your email address. You will then be sent a validation e-mail. When you receive the e-mail, click on the link, and you will be prompted to enter your PIN. Once you enter your PIN you will be logged in. This process must be completed one time prior to accessing your personal account information. Once you have validated your account, you may login as usual.
The Entertainment Industry Flex Plan began more than 30 years ago to provide benefit solutions for Union Members in the 'Industry'. During this lengthy period of time, we have evolved to represent many affiliations of Unions throughout the United States and more than 27,000 members. As a result, we have learned and therefore refined what we do to continually improve service to our membership.
