LACCD will contribute $1,500 annually toward health care expenses for each benefited employee who is enrolled in a CalPERS medical plan.

To be eligible for the HRA, you must:

  • be an Active employee

  • have been hired, and enrolled in a CalPERS medical plan, on or before March 1

Any unused HRA funds will roll forward to the next calendar year.

HRA funds must be used before the Health Care FSA can be used, so it is very important that you carefully determine the amount that you should withhold from your salary to contribute to your Health Care FSA to avoid forfeiting any of your FSA contributions. However, the dependent care FSA is not linked to the HRA. Therefore, you may be reimbursed for dependent care expenses at any time during the calendar year for which you have enrolled.

Please remember that to be reimbursed for eligible health care expenses, you must complete and sign a claim form and submit it along with an explanation of benefits (EOB) or a detailed receipt as proof of services rendered. Claims are reimbursed based on the dates of services following the date you are enrolled in the plan. You may submit claims at any time during the current plan year. You also have until March 31 of the following year to submit eligible expenses incurred during the previous plan year.
