“LIGHT DUTY” REQUESTS

As a reminder, all requests for light duty accommodations MUST be coordinated with your supervisor and the RCUH Human Resources (HR) Department.  A Job Physical Analysis (JPA) form must be completed and reviewed BEFORE you will be allowed to return to work.  This is to ensure that your physician is fully aware of your essential job duties and functions before making a determination on whether you are able or unable to perform these duties/functions safely. 

 

Employees are NOT authorized to return to work on light duty status without first receiving approval from the RCUH HR Department.  If you have any questions, please contact Elmer “Tahi” Lim at [email protected] or at (808) 956-3100.

 

3 MONTHS LEFT…

…to utilize your current Flexible Spending Plan Accounts (Medical Expense Reimbursement & Dependent Care Expense Reimbursement Accounts).  The end of the current Flexible Spending Plan Year is quickly approaching (June 30, 2014).  Services must be incurred during the plan year ending June 30, 2014.   Unused contributions will be forfeited at the end of the plan year (NO EXCEPTIONS).

 

We urge all employees to submit their reimbursement forms to National Benefit Services (NBS) in a timely manner.  Although services MUST be incurred by June 30, 2014, you do have 90 days after this date to submit your reimbursement forms with ALL supporting documentation (ex. receipts, contracts) needed to reimburse you for Flexible Spending monies.  DO NOT WAIT until the end of the 90-day grace period to submit your reimbursement forms!!!

 

In order to claim/submit for reimbursements, you need to complete the NBS reimbursement form and submit it along with a copy of your receipt(s) to “National Benefits Services” via fax, mail, or email:

  • FAX: Salt Lake City Area Fax: (801) 355-0928

  • Toll Free Fax: (800) 478-1528

  • Mail: National Benefit Services, LLC, P.O. Box 8980, West Jordan, UT 84084

  • Email: [email protected] (PDF, TIFF or JPEG files only)

If you have any questions or need additional reimbursement forms, please call (800) 274-0503 or download forms from the NBS website at www.nbsbenefits.com.
