You’ve spent years saving for your retirement, and maximizing your savings is more important than ever. Check to see if your employee benefits include a CONEXIS Retiree Health Reimbursement Arrangement (RHRA). This account offers financial support from your employer to help pay for health care expenses you may have during your retirement.
You don’t contribute any money for this account. Your employer provides the funding for your retiree HRA, which allows you to purchase qualified health care expenses using your account funds. As long as there is money in your account, you can use the funds to pay for eligible HRA expenses.
Your employer decides which health care expenses will be reimbursed by your RHRA. Most expenses are similar to those reimbursed by a health FSA.
Important: To find out the specific eligible expenses for your RHRA plan, review your employer’s Summary Plan Description (SPD).
Good news! You don’t pay taxes on the money in your retiree HRA or your reimbursed expenses.

Does your retiree HRA include the CONEXIS Elite Visa® Benefit Card? If so, you will find that paying for health care expenses couldn’t be any easier. The benefit card gives you instant access to your RHRA funds so you can pay for eligible expenses at most merchants where Visa is accepted.

Your employer sponsors your retiree HRA plan and decides how the plan is set up, how much money goes into the account, if funds can roll over to the following year, and expenses that are reimbursed.
Because of this flexibility, each RHRA varies from employer to employer. Your account funds may accumulate while you are an active employee, or your employer may establish your RHRA after you retire and contribute funds each year throughout your retirement. Check your Summary Plan Description (SPD) for specific details about your RHRA plan.
RHRAs are regulated by IRS rules. These rules require CONEXIS to review your RHRA reimbursement requests. You must keep all receipts and other supporting documentation that verify your retiree HRA eligible expenses.
