HSA Bulk Transfer
- The bulk transfer process (blackout period, transfer, and reconciliation) will occur between March 1 – March 14, 2022. During this time, do not attempt to access your Optum HSA account or use any of your Optum Bank HSA funds, or your funds will not be transferred from Optum Bank to AccrueHealth. You can use any 2022 HSA funds deposited in your AccrueHealth account during this time.

How the Choice and Value HSA Plans work
First, open an HSA.
Open your AccrueHealth HSA to receive money from Bloomin’ Brands. You’ll receive money by completion of Health Actions through the Health Rewards Program.
In addition to money from Bloomin’ Brands, you can elect to deposit your own money into your HSA from each paycheck before your pay is taxed. Remember, the maximum amount you can contribute to your HSA is the annual limit set by the IRS, plus any catch-up contributions if you are eligible, MINUS the maximum Health Rewards you are eligible to earn.

Next, you pay out of pocket.
The HSA medical options have a deductible, which is the amount you must pay before the plan begins paying for non-preventive services. If any dependents are enrolled, you must meet the family deductible before the plan shares in the cost of eligible expenses.
After you pay the deductible, the plan will share in the cost of eligible health care expenses, called coinsurance. For example, if the plan pays 80% of the cost, you will pay the remaining 20%.
Preventive care services are covered 100% in the network throughout the plan year and do not affect your HSA.
When you incur eligible healthcare expenses, you can choose to use your HSA or you can choose to pay another way (i.e., cash, credit card) and let your HSA grow. It’s your choice.
Finally, the plan begins to pay.
Once your deductible and coinsurance payments add up to the plan’s out-of-pocket maximum, the plan will pay 100% of all eligible healthcare expenses for the rest of the calendar year.
