Flexible Spending Accounts - Health Care and Dependent Care

Commonly referred to as FSA, this provides you with a way to set aside funds in a special pre-tax savings account for eligible health care or dependent care expenses.  You can enroll in the program on the date of hire or during open enrollment.  You will receive a debit card to use, or you may submit claims online or by mail.

To get started, you will need to determine how much money you would like in you account.  Use the FSA worksheet to assist with the thought process of budgeting along with the listing of eligible and ineligible expenses.
