Retirement Medical Trust Fund

Please be aware of the following changes to your Retirement Medical Trust (RMT) plan, beginning March 8, 2024:

  • The RMT administration and customer service will be transitioning from Total Administrative Services Corporation (TASC) to VOYA,  in coordination with Benefit Plan Administrative Services, Inc. (BPAS) and WEX Health, Inc. The current third party administrator, TASC, will no longer be associated with your account.
  • During the transition from TASC to Voya, there will be a temporary “blackout period” between March 8 and April 12, 2024, at which time:
    • Your account balance will remain with the current provider until assets are transferred to Voya. Upon transfer to Voya, your balance will be reinvested.
    • The dollar value of your account will not change. For example, if your Plan account balance was $10,000 when transferred from the current provider, your initial account balance invested with Voya will also be $10,000.
    • During the blackout period, you won’t be able to make investment changes and submit or obtain a claim reimbursement from your account.
    • If you have an April 1 recurring premium payment, you will need to submit a new recurring claim to Voya so Voya can process for you.
  • For RMT participants who are currently eligible to submit claims, two debit cards will be issued to simplify the process of paying for qualified medical expenses for you or your qualified tax dependents.

For more information regarding the transition from TASC to Voya, please read the newsletter found here.
