What is a runout period?

A runout period is the amount of time after a company cancels its plan that an employee is able to submit claims for expenses incurred while the plan was active. 

Runout periods can be 0, 30, 60 or 90 days long and the company administrator decides how long the runout period will be. 

For example, if the plan is canceled on 6 /30 and the administrator has selected a 30-day runout period. Employees can submit claims incurred up to 6 /30 until 7 /30.
