I have a similar issue as this question (Can I pay past expenses using an FSA opened midyear?) but with a Dependent Child FSA. Child had preschool expenses Jan - May. Had full amount elected, but I left company in Sept. At new company, I elected for the remaining expenses I hadn't paid yet. When I went to get reimbursed for them with my new companies FSA, I was told it was outside the coverage time.
Can I submit to my previous company's FSA even if I didn't pay in the entire amount?
Should I be able to be reimbursed for the other amounts, because I was in an FSA at the time the expenses occurred?
- Jan - June ($1200 in Preschool expenses). I elected $100 per month to be taken out of my paycheck.
- Left company in Oct after putting $1000 into my FSA (submitted for and was reimbursed for the $1000.)
- At new Employer, setup for $200 to be taken out, $100 for Nov. and $200 for Dec.
- Submitted for $200 to new Employer's FSA, but was denied because the costs occurred before I was enrolled in their program.
