EASY WAYS TO MANAGE YOUR FSA
One of the best things about having a CONEXIS FSA is how easy it is to use. Check out these resources to help you make the most of your FSA.
Swipe and Go
Your CONEXIS Visa® Benefit Card provides instant access to your Healthcare FSA funds – all you do is swipe your card and go! Use your card to pay for eligible expenses, and funds are automatically deducted from your account. There's no need to pay out of pocket and then wait for a reimbursement check.
Get Real-time Alerts
When you enroll in Real-time Alerts, you will receive instant messages about your benefit card activity, making it even easier to keep up with your Healthcare FSA. Just look for the Real-time Alerts quick link in your online account.
Download the Mobile App
With the MyCONEXIS app, you can submit claims or clear unresolved card transactions when on the go. Download the app onto your mobile device, then log in with the same username and password as your online account.
  Download MyCONEXIS app from the App StoreSM

Visit Your Online Account
Your online account is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Simply log in to view your real-time account activity, see account details, review lists of eligible expenses, get answers to frequently asked questions, and so much more.
Reminder: Save All Receipts
Please be sure to save all of your itemized receipts and other supporting documentation. Not only will you need these documents when submitting a claim, but the IRS requires proper supporting documentation to verify all FSA expenses – even those purchased with your benefit card. Having your receipts handy helps make managing your FSA a breeze.

KNOW YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE NUMBERS?
Blood pressure that stays high for a long time can damage your heart and lead to health problems. Yet with little to no warning signs of high blood pressure, many people do not know they have it.
That's why it's important to be in the know and check your blood pressure on occasion. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends blood pressure less than 120/80, but be sure to ask your doctor what your target numbers should be.
Fortunately, even if your blood pressure is a little too high, there are steps you can take to help improve your blood pressure numbers:
•  Eat healthy foods that are low in saturated fat and sodium (salt).
•  Aim for 30 minutes each day of moderate aerobic activity (fast walking, bike riding, swimming, dancing, etc.).
•  Watch your weight – shedding a few extra pounds can help control your blood pressure.
•  Remember to take medicines as prescribed by your doctor.
Some more good news: You can use your Healthcare FSA dollars toward eligible expenses such as doctor visits, prescriptions, and over-the-counter healthcare items like blood pressure monitors. Your FSA funds may also potentially cover nutrition supplements or exercise equipment if recommended by a doctor to help treat or prevent a medical condition. If so, ask your doctor to complete a Medical Determination Form and submit the form along with your supporting documentation. You can find a Medical Determination Form in your online account.

How do I pay for eligible and ineligible healthcare items at checkout?
When using your CONEXIS Benefit Card at an IIAS merchant, you don't have to worry about which expenses qualify or splitting up your purchase at checkout – the store's computer system does it for you. Just swipe your benefit card, then use another form of payment (cash, personal credit or debit card, etc.) to purchase the ineligible items.
For example, let's say you go to a pharmacy to get a prescription filled. While there, you pick up bandages and hand sanitizer. At checkout, you'll pay for your prescription and bandages with your benefit card, and then you'll be asked to use another form of payment for the hand sanitizer, which is an ineligible expense.
