Flex Cash

FlexCash Program

Employees who are eligible for medical/dental insurance and have other non-CSU group coverage can elect to waive CSU coverage in exchange for a monthly cash payment:

  • Medical and dental: $140.00;
  • Medical only: $128.00;
  • Dental only: $12.00

Employee FlexCash Basics

  • Must certify that they have alternative non-CSU group medical and/or dental coverage
  • Provide proof of other non-CSU group coverage
  • Not eligible to participate if covered as the dependent of another CSU employee
  • FlexCash payment is treated as taxable income and is subject to payroll taxes
  • Eligible employees have 60 calendar days commencing with their appointment date to enroll in the FlexCash plan

Note: Under the Federal Patient Protection and Affordable minimum value standards. Care Act (ACA), the IRS has recently prohibited employers from offering cash to employees who choose to waive employer-sponsored medical coverage and enroll in "individual" medical coverage. Employees who are enrolled in individual medical coverage, such as Tricare, Medicare, Medi-Cal and Covered California, are not eligible to receive cash in lieu of other medical coverage even if the coverage provides minimum value. These requirements do not apply to dental coverage.

For detailed information, refer to the CSU FlexCash pamphlet from the Benefits Office.
