Your HRA allowance can be used to reimburse you (on a tax-free basis) for eligible health care expenses not covered through your medical, dental, vision and prescription drug benefits or other coverage—such as deductibles, copayments, premiums and certain non-covered expenses.
HRA requests may be submitted for qualified health expenses within 60 months from the date they are incurred. You may submit a request for any amount. There is no minimum.
There are three ways to file an HRA claim for reimbursement:

A useful instruction guide for the SCPT Health & Welfare Fund HRA Portal can be found here.
You can also use your SCPT HRA debit card to pay for eligible HRA expenses at various IRS approved merchant locations. A list of eligible HRA expenses can be found here:
Claims must include proof of payment and either an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) or itemized bill. Proof of payment may include a receipt, cancelled check or provider statement.
To maximize your HRA allowance, the Fund Office needs to apply all other Plan benefits (such as medical, prescription drug, dental and vision) before using your allowance.
