ParTNers for Health Wellness Program

Following the award of the wellness program contract back in July, one of the proposers filed a protest, which was ruled on but the ruling was appealed. The court process is still on-going. We are waiting on the final outcome to determine next steps. What this means for members is that we will not have a wellness program in place (and cash incentives for state plan members) until resolution of the litigation. Please check back here for updates related to the protest process. As soon as the protest is resolved, we will communicate the anticipated start date of the voluntary wellness program.

FSA: medical & limited purpose (state and higher ed employees only)  

After enrolling in a flexible spending account (FSA or L-FSA) either in Edison (state employees) or with your HR rep (higher education), PayFlex will mail you a debit card. Your full FSA and L-FSA contribution is available for use after you enroll. Please note, if you are enrolled in the dependent care FSA (DC-FSA), you may not use the debit card to pay for those expenses, and you can only spend what you have contributed to your dependent care account.

New users and higher education employees previously enrolled can login at PayFlex to register and set up their online account/profile.
