Business Manager Comments     

Recently with the addition of Vision and Dental insurance we have had a few issues with people using their benny cards.  NWOA should be sending out a flyer explaining a few different rules for the benny card usage.  Please be sure if you are using your benny card that the expense is first ran through your insurance.  Before this coverage took effect, you could use your benny card to pay for a dentist/eye doctor visit in full.  Now, since you have insurance, the benny card cannot be used until insurance pays their portion.  If you have questions or need help with a situation with your benny card, please give me a call.
