It can't be that easy

I'm a little dubious about the process by which I can receive reimbursement for my new glasses from my flexible medical spending account. The claim form I just received from HR asks for the following information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Social Security Number
  • Total health care expenses

I'm to take the completed form and fax it with my receipt to the company. And that's it. It seems too easy. I can't help but feel like I'm missing some crucial step, even though I've read the instructions three times.

Granted, it shouldn't be a complicated process; it is, after all, my money, and the company that manages the account should make it easy for me to get it when I want it. But how often is anything involving money, or anything run by a large corporation, as easy as it should be?
