Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA)

Blue Access $1,500 and Blue Access $2,500 participants are provided with a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) account totally funded by the University. HRA funds can be used to pay for any service or item prescribed by a physician.

Effective January 1, 2011, HRA (and FSA) funds cannot be used to pay for over-the-counter medicines and supplies unless prescribed by a physician.

The HRA is funded by MSU as follows:

  • Single—$650
  • 2-Person—$1,150
  • Family—$1,150
  • 2-Person H&W—$1,300
  • Family H&W—$1,300

HRA contributions will be added to your account semi-annually, thus 1/2 of the annual contribution will be deposited in your account on January 1 and then again on July 1. Funds for filing claims will only be available as deposited.
If your HRA account has a balance of $6,000 or more on January 1, you will not be eligible for a new HRA contribution on January 1. If your account falls below $6,000 by July 1, 2011, you will receive half of the annual contribution or a portion of that amount that on July 1 that will increase your balance to $6,000.

If you have a medical FSA and a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA), the FSA will be the first payer of reimbursements until the account is exhausted. When the FSA account is exhausted, the HRA account will automatically become the next payer of reimbursements.

TRISTAR administers MSU's HRA plan.
