Some agencies that participate with the WV Public Employees Insurance Agency also carry Mountaineer Flexible Benefits through Flexible Benefits Management (FBMC - Customer Care #800-342-8017). The followiing are some reminders from FBMC.
All participating agencies should mail the monthly Personal Pay/Leave of Absence Form to PEIA, Attn: Chip Myers, 601 57th St., SE, Suite 2, Charleston, WV 25304-2345. Please do not fold billing information when mailing but rather use a flat manila envelope.
Regarding monthly payroll instructions, County Boards of Education and Non-State Agencies that participate with FBMC should mail the remittance form, the adjustment form, and a copy of your remittance check to: FBMC Benefits Management, Attn: Benefits Admin., P. O. Box 1878, Tallahassee, FL 32302-1878 or fax these to 850-514-5803. Then the physical check, and copies of the remittance and adjustment forms should be sent to: PEIA, Attn: Chip Myers, 601 57th St., SE, Suite 2, Charleston, WV 25304-2345. Again, please do not fold the billing information when mailing but rather use a flat manila envelope.
When a PEIA member sends in a Change in Status or Change of Address form to PEIA, they also need to complete an FBMC form to make those changes to their Mountaineer Flexible Benefits. Please note that FBMC only requires supporting documentation for qualifying events (Change In Status form); supporting documents are not required for open enrollment changes or for new hire enrollments. Additionally, FBMC rules for Change in Status vary slightly from PEIA rules; changes to coverage made due to a qualifying event must be received by FBMC within 60 days of the change event. This differs from PEIA rules which state that changes can be made based on a qualifying event during the remainder of the month in which the event occurs plus the two following months. The FBMC Change in Status form is the same as the Enrollment Form which provides checkboxes in the upper right corner which should be marked as applicable for Open Enrollment, Transfer, New Hire, and Change in Status. The FBMC Change of Address Form is used to submit any address changes to FBMC.
