What is happening for 2019

2019 is right around the corner. See what you need to know—and do—to head into the New Year with confidence. 

New administrator for Disney accounts

  • Optum Bank will replace PayFlex as the administrator of Disney’s tax-advantaged accounts, including the Health Savings Account, Health Reimbursement Account, and the Health Care and Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Accounts.
  • If you enrolled, you will receive a single debit card from Optum in December to use for all accounts that apply to you.
  • Learn more about how current accounts will transfer and read Frequently Asked Questions.

Changes to employee contributions, deductibles and copays

  • Some employee contributions for medical options as well as deductibles for Basic PPO and Consumer Choice will increase. 
  • Copays under annual eye exams are being eliminated—that means no cost to you for in-network preventive care under all of Disney's health plan options.

Easier to use Voluntary Benefits site

  • Sign up for discounts on home, auto and pet insurance—and check out the Purchasing Power Program as a potential way to pay for purchases such as computers and appliances through automatic payroll deductions.
