Q: Who is eligible for a GEHA Medicare Part B Reimbursement Account?
A: GEHA members who are enrolled in the High Option plan and in both Medicare Parts A and B — and who can show proof they have paid Medicare Part B premiums — are eligible to submit a claim for Part B reimbursement up to $1,000 in 2024.
Q: Is the $1,000 per person or per family?
A: Every person covered under the subscriber's enrollment who meets the eligibility requirements listed above can submit a claim for reimbursement up to $1,000 in 2024.
Q: What type of proof of Part B premium payment is needed for reimbursement?
A: Examples of proof include:
- A Social Security "cost of living adjustment" (COLA) statement or an annuity statement, or
- A canceled check or a copy of a bank or credit card statement (these must be accompanied by a Medicare Part B premium bill that matches the amount paid).
Q: How will I submit my reimbursement and who will it go to?
A: HealthEquity will be managing this process on behalf of GEHA. Options will include submission via an online HealthEquity account, a paper claim form that can be mailed or faxed to HealthEquity and the HealthEquity EZ Receipts mobile app.
Q: Once payment is submitted, how long will it take to get reimbursed?
A: If you submit your request through your online HealthEquity account and specify direct deposit, turnaround time should be 2 to 5 business days. Paper claim forms will be processed by HealthEquity within 2 days of receipt and paper checks should reach you within two weeks.
Q: Do I have to wait until I have paid the full $1,000 in 2024 (or in 2023) to Medicare before I can submit a claim?
A: You have two options. You can wait until you have paid $1,000 in 2024 (or in 2023) to Medicare and submit your form and proof of payments all at once, or you can submit forms and proof monthly as you pay your Part B premiums until you reach your maximum.
Q: When is the deadline for reimbursement for my Medicare Part B premiums?
A: For 2023, the deadline for reimbursement is a 12/31/2024 postmark date. For 2024, the deadline for reimbursement is a 12/31/2025 postmark date.
Q: Is primary payer status required on the Medicare coverage to receive the benefit?
A: No, Medicare can be the primary or secondary payer. If Medicare is your secondary payer, you may want to confirm that GEHA is aware of your Medicare coverage.
