Health Reimbursement Arrangement (Inside Wireman, Intelligent Transportation, and Railroad)
Download HRA Instructions >>
The new Southern California IBEW-NECA Health Trust Fund Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) went live on September 1, 2017. Your HRA account, which was collectively bargained on your behalf, will help you pay medical expenses not covered by the Health Plan.
The funds in your account are available to you effective September 1, 2017. Here are three ways you can put those funds to use.
- Log on to the HRA Web Portal and request a reimbursement. After you pay for an eligible expense, you can log on to your HRA Web Portal and request a reimbursement. See the enclosed instructions for a quick tutorial.
- Log on to the HRA Web Portal and request payment to a provider. You can also pay eligible expenses (like a doctor’s bill or a COBRA premium) directly from your HRA account. See the enclosed instruction sheet for more information.
- Use your HRA debit card. The week of September 11, 2017, you will be receiving your HRA debit card (two per family). The card is accepted at most merchants where you would have eligible expenses (e.g. CVS, Rite Aid, Costco). You can pay for your eligible expenses with the card, but it will not work for non-eligible purchases (e.g. you cannot use it to purchase non-eligible items at a drug store).
Your HRA debit card is the simplest way for you to access the funds in your HRA account. If you do not receive your HRA debit card, contact Coast Benefits at (844) 739-7956.
If you have any questions about your HRA benefit or how to access your benefits, please call Coast Benefits at (844) 739-7956.
