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

FlexCash Basics

  • Must certify that you have alternative non-CSU group medical and/or dental coverage.
  • Must provide proof of other non-CSU group coverage.
  • Dependents on another CSU employee plan are not eligible.
  • 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 Care Act (ACA), the IRS has 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, or those who participate in a "health-care sharing" program 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.
