Some MyFBMC cards expiring soon

Some MyFBMC cards expired at the end of February. New cards were mailed to participants beginning February 2-15, 2017. Participant's old cards will work until March 1; however, new cards should be activated immediately upon receipt.

Please note the following:

  • If a card is currently suspended due to Card Use Verification (CUV), the new card cannot be activated.
  • If applicable, you should update your mail order pharmacy with the new card's expiration date.
  • If you have not received a new card by February 20, you should call WageWorks at 800.342.8017.
  • You may receive a new card if you terminated after February 1, as the card vendor may not have been privy of the termination when the reissue process started. If this happens, please destroy the new card.
