The company I work for used to have a September to September year for insurance. They decided to make it December to december. We also have Flexible spending which is handled by AFLAC.
Ok, I filled out the paperwork for everything having no Flexible spending as a 3 month period is just not worth it, to apt to lose the money.
Then I find out AFLAC required a special form in addition to the one I filled out. I then try to schedule as much as possible for this year. No teasy but get some done. Now it comes to spending the rest, including some 'maybe' allowable items.
Just got off the phone checking on a claim, to see it is allowed. They made all the excuses, but basically it comes down to they know there are going to be lots of claims, but they still get more days off than the rest of us (Thursday through tuesday and then again this Friday).
Actaully I was really upset with the first round of this, but now I'm even more upset.
Unfortuantly it seems AFLAC is one of very few companies that handles Flexible spending plans.
My hope is that someone here is in a decision making position and will take my rant into account.
