The Fund Office is now providing you with an easy way to access your Supplemental Benefit Fund. Your Prepaid
Mastercard/Debit Benefit Card is loaded with the value of your Supplemental Fund Account.
This Card can be used, instead of cash, to pay for qualified health care expenses such as:
- Prescription and health insurance plan copayments, deductibles & coinsurances
- Mail-order or online prescription invoice
- Eligible over-the-counter (OTC) expenses
You’ll simply swipe your Card each time you incur a qualified health care expense and the amount of your
purchase will be deducted from your Supplemental Benefit Fund – automatically. You can also fill in your Card
number on bills you receive from health care providers to pay the amount you owe. Remember, the Card will not
work at gas stations or restaurants – only at health care related providers.
With the new Debit Card service, you can now view your Supplemental Fund balance and submit qualified medical
expenses through a Member Portal or Mobile App. Click on document below to view information and instructions on

IMPORTANT REMINDER: It’s Important to Save Your Receipts!
Your Prepaid Debit Benefit Card will definitely improve your cash flow. However, be aware that the IRS requires
the Card to be used only for eligible expenses. Most of the time, we will be able to verify the eligibility of
the expense automatically. Yet, there are instances when you’ll receive a letter/notification asking you to
furnish an itemized receipt and Explanation of Benefits (EOB’s) received from your health insurance provider to
verify the expense.
When you receive such a request, make sure you submit the receipts & EOB’s as soon as
possible to avoid having your Card suspended until receipts have been submitted and approved. Information
Required on Documentation:
- Name of person who incurred the service or expense
- Name and address of the provider or merchant
- Date of service for the amount charged
- Detailed description of the service
- Amount due for the services provided
EOB’s contain all of the required information and are excellent sources of documentation. Credit card receipts
cancelled checks are not acceptable!
