Flexible Spending Accounts are offered on a group by group basis. Check with your human resources department to see if your employer offers this added benefit.
With a Flexible Spending Account you can use pre-tax dollars to pay for unreimbursed medical expenses as defined by the IRS. If your employer participates in Dependent Care Accounts, your pre-tax dollars can be used to offset this ever increasing expense.
Another advantage HCS offers for Flexible Spending Accounts is the Benny Card – your FSA debit card. Check with your employer to see if this option is available to you!
The FSA debit card makes it fast and convenient to access the money set aside in your FSA. The card contains the value of your annual health care FSA election amount. Your debit card can be used to pay for qualified medical expenses not covered by health insurance. Just swipe and go!
