A person who participates in a flexible spending account or health expense reimbursement program at work receives the Benny Prepaid Benefits Card in the mail directly from the employee benefits plan administrator. There is usually no need to apply for this card. If the person loses the card, the benefits plan administrator can send a replacement after the person reports the card missing.
People use the Benny Prepaid Benefits Card to pay for eligible healthcare expenses, and it is a type of debt card. It streamlines the process of getting reimbursed for healthcare expenses since the user doesn't have to worry about submitting claim forms. Some things the card may be used for include over-the-counter medications, bandages, prescriptions, doctor's office fees and dental fees, notes the Oregon Education Benefit Board.
