Pre-Tax Expense Accounts
To all faculty and staff:
Effective March 1, 1998, the University's Pre-Tax Health Care and Dependent Care Accounts will be administrated by Eastern Benefit Systems, Inc. (EBS), a professional claims administrator that has been in business for over 20 years. EBS will be responsible for processing claims, issuing checks to plan participants, and answering participants' questions regarding their benefits. Enrollments in these accounts (during open enrollment and for new employees) will continue to be processed by the Human Resources Benefits Office.
Therefore, beginning March 1, 1998, please submit your claims directly to EBS at the following address:
This week, EBS will be sending you a claims kit with claim forms and pre-addressed envelopes. Starting on March 1, if you have inquiries about reimbursable amounts as well as the status of your account, please call 1-888-PENNFLX (1-888-736-6359), Ext. 213, and identify yourself as a Penn employee.
