COVID-19 AND DEPENDENT CARE FSAs

While no COVID-19-related guidance has been issued (nor accommodations made) to-date with respect to Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), please keep in mind that Dependent Care FSA elections do have some flexibility relating to changes in daycare providers or the cost of dependent care.

This means that participants can add/increase their Dependent Care FSA elections in order to pay for daycare for school-age children who are no longer able to attend school. Additionally, participants can revoke/decrease their elections if they stop working, or if they can no longer keep their children in their existing daycare due to facility closures. When regular activities resume, participants will likely experience change in cost events (that is, qualified expenses) that would allow them to modify their Dependent Care FSA elections again. Permitted election changes must be requested within 30 calendar days of the event and must be made on a going forward/prospective basis (that is, it cannot be retroactive).

If your situation warrants that you need to make a change to your Dependent Care FSA election, please contact Human Resources Benefits at benefits@marquette.edu.

NAVITUS - 2020 PRESCRIPTION MAIL SERVICE CHANGE

On 1/1/2020, Marquette University’s prescription drug plan will begin using Postal Prescription Services (PPS), a subsidiary of The Kroger Co. (parent company of Pick ‘N Save and Metro Market), as its mail order pharmacy. This change only affects Marquette University’s mail order pharmacy. Your prescription drug coverage will continue to be managed by Navitus.

How to transfer existing medications

Most of your information will automatically transfer to PPS via an Open Refill Transfer process. This includes your name, member ID number and prescriptions with refills remaining. However, certain prescriptions cannot be transferred:

  • Controlled medications.
  • Prescriptions with no refills remaining.
  • Prescriptions written more than 12 months ago. This applies even if you have refills remaining.

Certain information cannot be legally transferred. This includes credit card numbers and drug allergies. Even if your prescriptions were able to be transferred from the previous mail order pharmacy, you will need to call PPS Customer Service at 1-800-552-6694 to obtain your new PPS Rx #(s) on file to link to your web account in order to complete your registration. Therefore, you will need to register with PPS before you can begin using this benefit. You can register starting 1/1/2020. Prescription refill orders can be requested through PPS beginning 1/1/2020.

How to register with Postal Prescription Services

You can sign up online at www.ppsrx.com or you can call PPS toll-free at 1-800-552-6694 starting 1/1/2020.

Please allow 10 - 14 calendar days from the day you submit your order to receive your medicine(s). Prescriptions should be ordered from the current mail order pharmacy if they are needed within the first 2 weeks after the 1/1/2020 transition date.

If you have any mail order questions, call PPS at 1-800-552-6694 starting 1/1/2020.

If you have any questions about your pharmacy benefits, call Navitus Customer Care at 1-866-333-2757.
