Ken Stein6/26/2019

Ken Stein I spoke with Alight and they told me the problem was to be resolved tomorrow, 6/27. They explained that the problem was on the FedEx side and wasn't connecting the FedEx account to the VBO HRA account on their side.

Lloyd AndCindy Wilson6/28/2019

Has anyone in FedEx Services that took the 5/31 VBO received their Retiree Badge as yet? I and others I've talked to have not.

Paula Crockett6/28/2019

Paula Crockett I called and they said that they are backlogged. The number to call is (901)375-6601. I have not gotten mine either. 1 路

Laverne Deanes6/28/2019

Laverne Deanes Paula Crockett back logged as in mailing them out?

Paula Crockett6/28/2019

Paula Crockett Laverne Deanes as in processing them in. They are processing all badges, not just retirement.

Laverne Deanes6/28/2019

Laverne Deanes Paula Crockett LOL that doesn't make sense. There were boxes and boxes of retirement badges when I went to pick mine up. Maybe thoses were just for MEM.

Paula Crockett6/29/2019

Paula Crockett Laverne Deanes they were probably for Mem. When I called their office the guy told me the mix up as to whether they would to the badge trade on that day was because their old manager was leaving and the new one didn't want to do it. I guess since they had made them up he went on with it. I saw my badge, but didn't have the old one to turn in.

Karen Lynn Keywood6/28/2019

Karen Lynn Keywood I picked mine up at whq on 5.31. I believe that all the MEM badges were there. I saw several hundred of them. Edited 路 1 路

Laverne Deanes6/28/2019

Laverne Deanes Karen i picked mine up to at WHQ on 5/31. There was so much confusion. Some managers were saying to turn the badges into them, some said go to the WHG. Edited 路

Paula Crockett6/28/2019

Paula Crockett Karen Lynn Keywood the manager of the ID area took the VBO. He said yes, the new manager said no, then they went ahead and did it because some people were expecting it. My manager had me turn in my ID thinking it was still no. 1 路

Debbie Windsor6/28/2019

Marie McVay6/28/2019

Marie McVay I have not either. I heard a couple of folks picked theirs up at the WHQ. My manager鈥檚 email and guide said it would be mailed. Has anyone received their retirement gift information?

Karen Lynn Keywood6/28/2019

Karen Lynn Keywood Marie McVay the email I got said to pu on 5.31.19 at Whq for Mem folks. It looked like they had several hundred there when I got mine.

Marie McVay6/28/2019

Marie McVay The email to my manager came out after the email we received so we both thought she had the most current info. Her email had the list of things to collect from me, my ID was one of the items. Everything else went off as planned but had they caught the ID misinformation error, they could have saved a ton of money on mailing them out. Looking forward to my first retirement check in a few days. 馃榾

Don Beethe6/28/2019

Don Beethe Nope. I'm in COS so can't go to the WHQ

Marty Haywood6/30/2019

Marty Haywood MEM employees could pick them up on 5/31. I got mine then but when I spoke to the badge folks about non-MEM, they said they were backlogged doing a complete vertical badge replacement. Told me they would be about 30-45 days behind to do everything else.

Marie McVay7/1/2019

Just FYI - for those of us that just took the VBO. When you use your VBO HSA card, keep every single receipt (mail order scripts, detailed bills from doctor, Walgreens receipts). My husband recently used the card for the items not covered due to him not having met his company鈥檚 deductible. We have had to upload each receipt. The time limit for submission is only a week or so. I am not complaining, just be sure you keep those receipts. 馃榾 They do have an easy mobile app and online site where you can upload. Enjoy your Friday on Monday tomorrow! 馃槏

Gary Phillips7/1/2019

Debbie Windsor7/1/2019

Debbie Windsor Thanks for the info Marie! 1 路

Gary Phillips7/1/2019

Gary Phillips Yeah, I fought with th eff m many times. They question a lot or at least they used to. They have to answer to the Gov't and pay apparently, if they approve something not legit (reg health care spending account).

Richard Taylor7/1/2019

Richard Taylor Yes it is important to keep all receipts and to upload them so they will be paid by your HSA card.

Irene Williams7/1/2019

Irene Williams Also, don't upload receipts unless asked to provide them. If you anticipate you will need to do this and upload ahead of time, it creates a duplicate request for the same services/medicines that has to be straightened out.

Ok- retired 18 months ago and chose to Cobra for 18 months to avoid administrative weirdness. Cobra expired yesterday, so today first day to sign up for retiree insurance. Was so proud to work at FedEx for 35 years! Singing up for coverage is a several hour shit show- and I THINK I am enrolled now. But I swear, I THINK I pay insurance and then submit proof I paid and a reimbursement request to my health account??? Every month?I spoke to four different agents.... one was clearly US accent. But jeez...... embarrassing shit show.馃檮

A newly retired HR person gave me the name of a benefits analyst. Long story, short...the guide was rewritten three years ago and was rewritten incorrectly. The 2020 guide will be correct. In three years, no retiree questioned this section of the guide. I think I talked with every customer service agent with Hewit.

Laura Ladd Beard7/6/2019

Laura Ladd Beard Jeanene Tjaden me too. No buyout. I think we are talking about the same HRA. The amount was based on age. My monthly insurance premium was about$1,300 a month and I submitted the full amount to be reimbursed from the HRA until I used all the funds. It鈥檚 strictly up to the individual how much you request to be reimbursed each month.

Gary Phillips7/6/2019

Gary Phillips Laura Ladd Beard the HSA I was referring to was from the VBO. Confusing with the two different things with the VBO. 1 路

Gary Phillips7/6/2019

Gary Phillips Denise Wood it's a lot to take in.....thanks

Gary Phillips7/6/2019

Gary Phillips Jeanene Tjaden sorry if I confused you. The account you're referring to can only be used for premiums (I don't think that's changed). 2 路

Jeanene Tjaden7/6/2019

Jeanene Tjaden Gary Phillips what I meant was the HRA account.. Health Reimbursement Account. Is that what you meant?

Gary Phillips7/6/2019

Gary Phillips Jeanene Tjaden think of it as a HSA (spending account) for the VBO folks (can spend on most healthcare) and an HRA account ($$$ depends on age at time of retirement) for the retirees. This one is for ins premiums only. If you took VBO and retirement, you get both. Since YOU didn't do the VBO, you only get the HRA for retirees......helps with insurance premiums after you leave. Can be FedEx retiree ins or Medicare Part B, etc. I hope that helps a little. I was trying to include both to clarity. Even before all of this, there was an $85 per month reimbursement for insurance such as MEDICARE SUPPLEMENTS. That's gone and replaced by the one time payout for premiums. Again, all you should be concerned about is the one time lump sum for premiums. Gosh, I hope I got that all right. It's been 6 years since I filed anything. 2 路

Denise Wood Gary PhillipsI would love who owns those accounts! As in who profits if we get frustrated out of using it down? Is it like the STAMPS program? High profit because half of them get lost....why else would you make it so hard?

Laura Ladd Beard7/6/2019

Laura Ladd Beard Jeanene Tjaden my strategy was to get reimbursed as quickly as possible for as much as possible. My lump sum was $20k. I submitted my entire premium for 18 months and all $20k is now in my credit union account. Working on doing the same thing for my husband鈥檚 lump sum. I would rather manage the money myself. You never know when things might change.

Gary Phillips7/6/2019

Gary Phillips Denise Wood that's never been very clear. I didn't think a real HSA could be depleted or unused. I had always thought they just rolled over to the next year but the one we had was for 5 years. Maybe those are the ones you contribute to.

Laura Ladd Beard7/6/2019

Laura Ladd Beard Jeanene Tjaden just to be clear.... this is the lump sum reimbursement through Aon that鈥檚 based on the person鈥檚 age. It replaced the previous $85 a month that was given to retirees and spouses when they turned 65. It鈥檚 not associated with any buyout account. 1 路

Anyone who took VBO and activated COBRA has an active OptiumRX benefit right now? I can't get prescriptions and I am getting the run around.

Don Beethe7/2/2019

Don Beethe I just hit the same issue. I'm on the phone with cobra now. Got transferred there from Anthem Was told it can take 5-7 days for payments to go thru.

Steven Caddel7/3/2019

Maybe this is common knowledge, but I discovered that making your COBRA payment to BeneDirect WageWorks needs to occur before the due date. I made my payment on July 1, they received it July 2. In the mean time, they made my insurance coverage inactive on July 1. I was unable to follow up on a drug order placed at OptumRX because my account was inactive. Luckily, the order was placed on June 30. The WageWorks customer support said that payment needed to be made before the due date in order to prevent any lapse of coverage. Hmmm, my wife Jane, who spent 26 years as a DB at FedEx said it sounds like they have a data definition issue; Due Date versus Payment Processing Date. Just FYI for anyone else that took the VBO, and is on COBRA.

Allen Bell7/3/2019

Allen Bell After all the other challenges, I wondered about that very thing. They said we had a grace period, but I wasn鈥檛 very trusting. I paid a couple days early. Glad I did now! 1 路

Steven Caddel7/3/2019

Allen Bell Steven Caddel I just discovered that even though I paid my premium a few days early, my coverage with OptumRX was dropped on July 1. I seem to have medical coverage, so not sure what is going on. I will be calling Wageworks in the morning. Yay!

Steven Caddel7/5/2019

Steven Caddel Allen Bell I wonder if your payment was "processed" by July 1. That seems to be the issue. A few days may not be enough. Let me know.

Allen Bell7/6/2019

Allen Bell Steven Caddel I called this morning and they were able to contact OptumRx, and get it activated. I asked what I needed to do to prevent it from happening in the future.

Sounds simple enough to me, transfer 120.19 from Cigna to ConnectYourCare. Every five days I get a call or email from Fedex informing me they need more time. I told them today, I need a resolution. Fedex it seems has left it up to ConnectYourCare and Cigna to work it out. and has stepped back. So I told them today Fedex needs to step in and get this resolved.

Carol Cobb7/9/2019

I鈥檓 filling out my Cobra reimbursement on the YSA website for first time today. Can someone tell me what I put for 鈥淧remium鈥. Do I put 鈥淥ther鈥. This is for the VBO HRA (not RHPA). There is no option to choose 鈥淐obra鈥 under premium type. Thanks! I held on phone forever this afternoon and could not get to a person for help.

Laverne Deanes7/9/2019

Laverne Deanes There's instructions to set up a reoccurring reimbursement that we got in the mail about a qeek and a half ago. Edited 路

Daline Doyle7/9/2019

Daline Doyle Laverne Deanes I was told today ... if you set up for automatic reimbursement, it will come out of your Retiree money acct and NOT the vbo acct???

Laverne Deanes7/11/2019

Laverne Deanes Daline Doyle, yes that did happen. Supposedly it's fixed now. Edited 路

Karen Lynn Keywood7/16/2019

Karen Lynn Keywood Laverne Deanes I set my Jul payment up for auto reimbursement and it came out of the Retiree acct. I am going to call and get it corrected. I don鈥檛 think you can use auto reimbursement for cobra 1 路

Laverne Deanes7/16/2019

Laverne Deanes Karen Lynn Keywood Thanks for the update. The last I talked with YSA, I was assured it would be fixed. Sigh....................

Karen Lynn Keywood7/16/2019

Karen Lynn Keywood Laverne Deanes they took my jul cobra out of the retirement acct on 7.11 so it is not fixed yet. They broke their rule of paying cobra out of the retirement account 1 路

Steven Caddel7/9/2019

Steven Caddel I put Premium, and that worked for me.

Carol Cobb7/9/2019

Carol Cobb Steven Caddel thanks. I put 鈥淧remium鈥 for type of service. Then the next question is 鈥減rovider鈥- Do you put 鈥淐obra鈥 there for provider? And then the next question is 鈥淧remium Type鈥. Did you put 鈥淥ther鈥?

Betty Lee Pace7/9/2019

Betty Lee Pace Carol Cobb I put Benedirect, the receipt said Benedirect/Wage Works.

Steven Caddel7/9/2019

Steven Caddel Carol I put Type of Service - Premium Provider - BeneDirect Wage Works Premium Type - COBRA I hope this helps

Carol Cobb7/9/2019

Carol Cobb Steven Caddel thanks. Yes, that helps a lot. Only problem now is there is no 鈥淐obra鈥 choice under Premium Type. There is only: Dental, IRMAS/Late Enrollment Penalties, Medicare Medical, Medicare Part B, Other, Pre-65 Dental, Pre-65 Medical, Pre-65 Prescription, Pre-65 Vision, Medicare Prescription, and Dental.

Betty Lee Pace7/9/2019

Betty Lee Pace Carol Cobb We only have vision and dental, is there a choice of "other"?

Carol Cobb7/9/2019

Carol Cobb Betty Lee Pace thanks. That helps I wasn鈥檛 sure what to put there either Lol. But what is the type 鈥淥ther鈥?

Carol Cobb7/9/2019

Carol Cobb Sorry I was responding to your first comment I think. I have all the choices listed under reply to Steven Caddel. Not Sure which To pick

Allen Bell7/9/2019

Allen Bell I have been putting Pre 65 Medical and it seems to work. I tried doing the auto reimbursement starting with July. I was reimbursed, but now it says that it was discontinued moving forward. Not sure what happened. I need to call in when I have a moment.

Carol Cobb7/9/2019

Carol Cobb Allen Bell or an hour...lol. Thank for your help.

Allen Bell7/9/2019

Allen Bell This whole process continues to get more and more ridiculous. I just called YSA to find out why they discontinued my premium auto reimbursement. Turns out that auto reimbursement can only be used for retirement spending account and not on the VBO account. How much harder can they make the process? I can't use the debit card because WageWorks can't take it, so I have to pay for Cobra out of pocket, and then get reimbursed. I can't setup auto reimbursement for the VBO account, because it is only for the retirement account. And by the way, they also told me that Cobra cannot be paid for out of the retirement account either. I would like to speak to a FedEx employee about all of this. Does anyone have a contact that might be able to help?

Steven Caddel7/9/2019

Steven Caddel Allen Bell wow, this is a wrangle. Thanks for the info about auto pay and the VBO/Retirement Account. So I do know that the Retirement account cannot be used for COBRA.

Karen Lynn Keywood7/11/2019

Karen Lynn Keywood Allen Bell I set up my auto reimbursement yesterday for my cobra payment so hate to hear that won鈥檛 work.

Steven Moore7/9/2019

Steven Moore I was told the same thing....it does NOT cover cobra insurance.

Andy Collie7/15/2019

Andy Collie I was just told the same thing when I called about the premium auto reimbursement. It can only be used with the retirement spending account (Not VBO account) and you can't use the retirement spending account with COBRA. So essentially, you can't setup auto reimbursement for COBRA premiums.
