Mobile Pay - for FSA Participants
P&A Group, the vendor for the NCFlex Flexible Spending Accounts, recently announced a new digital payment feature. Mobile Pay is now an option for eligible reimbursement accounts, giving participants the option to use Mobile Pay instead of your P&A Benefits Card.

What is Mobile Pay?
Mobile Pay is a secure digital payment method that allows you to pay for eligible benefit account expenses digitally, through your mobile device. This digital payment solution offers more flexibility and convenience for P&A participants. 

How do I use Mobile Pay?
Mobile Pay is completely optional. To setup Mobile Pay, open your digital wallet through Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay and enter your P&A Benefits Card details. The app will walk you through an authentication process. When completed, you can begin to use Mobile Pay for all your eligible expenses. Similar to the Convenience Card, participants will only be able to use Mobile Pay for eligible expenses, at providers who accept digital payment methods.

For more information about Mobile Pay visit the P&A website.

P&A Mobile App - EZ Scan
As a reminder, your P&A Group Mobile app contains the feature "EZ Scan" where you scan a product barcode to see if it's eligible for reimbursement from your Health Care FSA.
Don't Forget your Cancer Wellness Benefit
Your NCFlex Cancer & Specified Disease Plan includes a Wellness benefit that pays you and your eligible family members annually when you have a covered preventive examination.
  • Low plan – pays each covered individual $25 annually
  • High/Premium plan – pays each covered individual $100 annually

The annual Wellness benefit is paid when a member undergoes examinations performed by a physician or physician’s assistant. Learn more about the 23 exams that qualify and how to file a claim.

Claims for the current and prior years, can be filed online or filed via paper form. Access the claim form or log into Allstate Benefits from the links below.
