If you are no longer an eligible individual, you can still receive tax-free distributions to pay or reimburse your qualified medical expenses. However, you can no longer contribute money to your HSA.

You are eligible for an HRA if you are enrolled in the CDHP and have primary or secondary coverage that is not a qualifying high deductible health plan (e.g., Medicare, Tricare for Life, etc.)

To be eligible to establish and contribute to an HSA on a pre-tax basis, you must meet the following criteria:

–  You are covered by an IRS qualified high deductible health plan – such as PEBP’s CDHP medical plan.
–  You are not covered by a non-IRS qualified high-deductible health plan – such as a spouse’s PPO or HMO medical plan.
–  You are not enrolled in Medicare.
–  You are not enrolled in TRICARE or TRICARE for life.
–  You have not received care from a Veterans Administration (VA) medical facility within the past three months.
–  You or your spouse cannot be enrolled in a Medical Flexible Spending Account or HRA which may be used to pay your out-of-pocket health care expenses.
–  You are not retired.

An unsubsidized dependent is an otherwise eligible spouse/domestic partner who transitions to the Medicare Exchange and elects PEBP dental coverage, while the primary plan participant remains covered under PEBP’s CDHP or HMO plan.

If a child (age 26 or younger) is enrolled as a dependent of a PEBP participant and becomes eligible for their own PEBP coverage as a primary participant, the child has the option to remain as a dependent OR enroll on their own as a primary participant.  If the child enrolls as a primary participant, they must be removed as a dependent from their parent’s coverage.
