City of Milwaukee FSA and HRA Blackout Period 12/14/20 to 12/31/20

The City will be transitioning from its current FSA/HRA administrator, Benefit Advantage, to Ameriflex starting January 1, 2021.  There will be a blackout period starting December 14 through December 31 and employees will not be able to use their debit cards or file claims through their FSA or HRA accounts during this period.  Review this FAQ document for additional information regarding the blackout.

Schedule Time with a UHC or Optum Representative!

Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4 employees can schedule an December 8 appointment for a virtual meeting or phone call with a UHC or Optum representative to answer questions on claims, prescriptions, issues and general inquiries regarding benefits.


Why is UHC Calling?

It may seem unusual, but the next time your phone's caller ID reads "UnitedHealthcare," there's a good chance it's an offer to connect you with information to help you manage or improve your health.  These are not sales calls, rather, these calls are used to extend invitations to members including wellness coaching, disease management and pregnancy resources.
