Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a tax-advantaged savings account that allows you to set aside money for eligible expenses on a tax-free basis.
- A Health Care FSA allows you to reimburse yourself for qualified out-of-pocket medical, dental, prescription or vision services including expenses applied to your deductible, copays and coinsurance.
- A Limited Purpose FSA allows you to reimburse yourself for qualified dental or vision expenses prior to meeting your deductible. After meeting your deductible, you can reimburse yourself for qualified medical, dental, prescription or vision services. You must be enrolled in the YOUR HSA-Eligible Plan and have a Health Savings (HSA) account to contribute to a Limited Purpose FSA.
- A Dependent Care FSA is a tax-advantaged savings account designed to help you save money on daycare expenses for dependent children so you and your spouse can work or go to school.
