Health Care Options: Using a Flexible Spending Account FSA

What is flexible spending?

It is a savings account that works for you, using your pre-tax money that is deducted at time of payroll. A Health Savings Account (HSA) also known as Flexible Spending works to allow you to pay for health care expenses not covered by insurance.

Examples. Your Co-pays, Deductibles, Prescriptions, Vitamins, Minerals, Dental, Vision and many other health care products using pre-tax dollars.

The employee may determine how much money, if any, they want to set aside. This will provide you with a debit card that allows you to pay for qualified medical expenses directly from your HSA account.

This helps to offset your High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) out of pocket costs. Some companies will contribute towards your HSA. Those employee do not need to made contributions to receive this benefit, however, they do need to set up an account to receive the HSA debit card. You may check with your company to see their Benefits and Enrollment Guide for the annual contribution amount.

  • You must be enrolled in the plan and meet eligibility requirements

  • Depending on the company the funds may or may not be carry over from year to year.

  • The employee may determine how much money, if any, they want to set aside through payroll deductions on a pre-tax basis.

FSA (Flexible Savings Account) for Health Care Expenses:

  • $1,000.00 per year maximum annual contribution

  • Minimum deposit $100 per year

  • Employees may begin to use funds as of January 1 and will not be required to wait for funds to be accumulated.

  • A debit card will be issued to each enrollee

  • In some cases depending on you your company employees may now roll over up to $500.00 that was not reimbursed in the previous calendar year. Anything over $500.00 is forfeited.
