    HSA / FSA SBSD TRANSITION FROM FUTURE PLANNING ASSOCIATES TO DATAPATH:

    Dear Employee covered by District Health Insurance,

    By now you have seen and/or heard that the Third Party Administrator, Future Planning Associates has decided to end their relationship with VT School District’s in administering HRA/FSA/HSA accounts. 

    With the help of VEHI (our health plan administrator), our District has chosen to move our business to DataPath Administrative Services.  VEHI had extensive meetings and worked quickly to make certain that District’s didn’t find themselves working with a vendor that was incapable of handling the volume of work that we would bring to them.   We feel confident that this company is poised to help us move forward as smoothly as possible with our HRA/FSA/HSA needs.  Effective April 30th, DataPath will be taking over the administration of our acconts (see attached letter).  The additional benefits to chosing DataPath, is that they are the company who wrote the myRSC.com software and they already have our data as well as the debit cards in their system which means we will not need to have any change in debit cards or username and passwords for the website you are familiar with now.  We will be sending out more information as we receive it from DataPath with key information about education and contact details. 

    In the meantime, I appreciate your patience as claims are still being processed with Future Planning and questions continue to come in.  I am happy to meet with employees in person to navigate any concerns and about claims or issues around the FSA/HRA/HSA accounts. You may feel free to send me an email as it’s not always possible to come to the HS for meetings.   There are still a lot of outstanding issues that if you are willing to share with me, I am taking notes so that we can help DataPath look into those. 

    I understand this has been a very difficult and stressful time for everyone, we are taking every step to ensure this transition is as smooth as possible.  While it may seem that the actual health insurance isn’t working, I want to assure you that it is working just as promised.  The issues have come from the inability of Future Planning to handle the processing of the FSA/HRA/HSA account administration which is benefit separate from the actual insurance itself.

    If you had a direct deposit set up with Future Planning Associates to receive your reimbursements directly in your bank account, YOU WILL NEED to FILL OUT a NEW form for DATAPATH!  Click here for that form. Send the completed form to Payroll in the Business Office.

    Feel free to reach out with questions.  I'm happy to do what I can.
