Payflex Health Reimbursement Account

What is an HRA?

Smithers will set aside funds into your HRA plan to pay your out-of-pocket medical, dental and vision expenses. You benefit by shopping for the lowest cost of care, which would stretch the money further. You can pay up to 36% less by shopping for your care. Sign in on payflex.com to get a personalized cost estimate based on your plan design.

Funds are set aside each year that you are enrolled in the $3,000 or $4,000 Deductible Plans based on factors within the wellness program. Click on the wellness tab for information on earning Smithers provided funds into your HRA. Any unused funds roll over to the next plan year. There is no maximum on the amount that you can roll over. Based on your savings, you could build up enough funds to cover your plan deductible and more!
