A WageWorks® KEHP Waiver Dental/Vision Only Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) is an employer-sponsored account to reimburse a portion of your eligible out-of-pocket dental and vision care expenses. If you’re eligible to receive KEHP health insurance coverage, but you’ve elected to waive it, you’re eligible to receive a Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA funded entirely by your employer to help with dental and vision costs. If your spouse has a Health Savings Account, this HRA is a great accompaniment.

  • Get $2,100 each year from your employer to pay for eligible dental and vision care expenses when you waive health insurance coverage

  • Use a handy debit card to pay for eligible expenses

How a Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA Works

Waive health insurance coverage and receive a $2,100 Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA funded entirely by your employer. It’s just another way your employer helps you make your healthcare more affordable.

Use your Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA to reduce your out-of-pocket spending on eligible dental and vision care expenses. Your Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA is available to you in two installments. You have half of your total Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA available to you on January 1.

Contribution Amounts

When you waive health insurance coverage, your employer contributes a total of $2,100 to your Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA in two installments:

  • $1,050 on January 1
  • $1,050 on July 1

The maximum carryover amount each year is $7,500 as long as you continue to waive your health insurance coverage and elect a Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA the following year.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for a Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA you must:

  • Be an active employee of a state agency, school board, or certain quasi-agencies who is eligible for state-sponsored health insurance coverage
  • Be a retiree who has returned to work and has not elected coverage through the retirement system

Are you eligible for a Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA? Examples:

  • If you currently have coverage through TRICARE, you may elect the Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA even though you are not eligible for the Waiver HRA.
  • If you are an employee of an agency that does not participate in KEHP’s HRA/FSA program, you ARE NOT eligible to elect the Waiver HRA or the Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA.
  • If you are a retiree under age 65 who has gone back to work and elected coverage under the retirement system, you ARE NOT eligible to elect the Waiver HRA or the Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA.
  • If you are an employee who does not have other group health plan coverage you may elect the Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA even though you are not eligible for the Waiver HRA.

Using Your Account

With a variety of payment and reimbursement options, your Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA is easy to use.

Pay by Debit Card

Use the WageWorks® Healthcare Card associated with your account to pay for hundreds of eligible healthcare products and services for you, your spouse, and your dependents. It comes to you preloaded with the first $1,050 Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA installment.

The WageWorks Healthcare Card works like a debit card. Just swipe your card at any in-network provider’s office or pharmacy and the eligible expense amount is deducted directly from your account.

Since your medical plan is not through KEHP, you need to keep your receipts and submit them for your expenses, even if you use your WageWorks® Healthcare Card. You can submit receipts and verify expenses by logging in to your online WageWorks account or by using the WageWorks EZ Receipts mobile app.

Pay Your Provider

Arrange for convenient direct payments to your healthcare provider. Simply access your online WageWorks account and fill out a simple form to have eligible expenses paid directly from your account.

Pay You Back

Arrange for account funds to be transferred to your checking account or a check to be mailed to reimburse you for eligible expenses you've already paid.

Managing Your Account

You can manage your account via a secure website on any computer or mobile device that’s connected to the Internet or via the WageWorks EZ Receipts® mobile app.

The WageWorks EZ Receipts app makes managing your account quick, easy, and completely mobile. Once you download the app to your mobile device and log in to your account, you can check your balances, submit claims, view transactions, take photos of receipts, and get account alerts by text or email.
