2021 Sandia Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRA)

Pre-Medicare Retirees and Spouses

Pre-Medicare retirees and covered Pre-Medicare spouses must complete an online health assessment in 2020 to receive the 2021 HRA funds. The window for you to take your Health Assessment began on October 1, 2019 and ended September 30, 2020.

Other covered dependents such as children are not required to complete the Health Assessment.

To complete your Health Assessment, log on to your administrators (Blue Cross Blue Shield of NM, Kaiser or UHC) website.


Please refer to your Annual Enrollment benefit guide for more information regarding the Health assessment and for contact information.

If you have questions or would like additional information regarding the Health Assessment, please contact Via Benefits, the Benefits Administrator for Sandia National Labs at 1-888-598-7809, Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Mountain Time.

The HRA is a Sandia-funded account and is provided to help offset your eligible out-of-pocket medical and prescription costs. The account is tax-free and the amount is provided at the beginning of the year. The amount of dollars allocated to you HRA is determined by Sandia and depends on the coverage category you choose. Amounts allocated are per coverage category and not per family member. Please note that PreMedicare Retirees are not eligible to participate in the Virgin HealthMiles program.

  • How do I access my HRA funds?

    If you have HRA funds remaining as of December 31 and remain with the same insurance provider, your funds will continue process as the prior year.

    If you have HRA funds remaining as of December 31 and switch insurance providers, these funds can be used for prior year claims up until March 31 with your previous provider to capture any run-out claims. Then the funds will be transferred to your new insurance provider by April 30th.
