How Does This Affect You?

  1. Your myFBMC Visa card will be deactivated on August 30 and you will not be able to use it to pay for health or pharmacy expenses. You will receive a new WageWorks® Health Card by September 16 when the new system becomes available.
  2. FBMC’s claim processing system will be shut down from August 30 to September 15 to allow for the transition of data from FBMC to WageWorks. Claims submitted will be put on hold during this time and will not be processed until September 16.
  3. Check your home address on your ePay statement. If it is not current, please update your information as soon as possible through your Payroll Liaison so that you receive your new card and Welcome Kit from WageWorks. Non-deliverable cards will be returned to WageWorks.
