The IRS has announced that the standard mileage rate for use of an automobile to obtain medical care will increase slightly from 17 cents per mile to 18 cents per mile for medical care expenses incurred on or after January 1, 2018.

In determining the amount of appropriate mileage for reimbursement, the participant must submit the following detail for mileage:

  • Date of travel/service (1/5/18);
  • Reason (Dr’s appt, PT, surgery);
  • From/to locations (Work location to provider & back to work or home);
  • # of miles (round trip).

Arcadia will also require an internet-based confirmation of miles, such as Map Quest, Google or Bing (as well as a claim form with accompanying documentation of the expense, i.e., office visit co-pay receipt or a copy of the Explanation of Benefits from the insurance carrier). Related parking fees and tolls may be submitted as separate items.
