Benefits of an FSA

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows employees to contribute money into an account with each paycheck to pay for qualified expenses on a pre-tax basis. Employees can then use these tax-free funds to pay for out-of-pocket medical costs and other eligible expenses! With FSAs, employers experience FICA savings on contributions, plus increase their appeal in attracting and retaining talented employees.

When employees use tax-free dollars to pay for qualified expenses, they realize a 25-30% savings* and an increase in spending power. The company saves too – 7.65% (FICA match) on every dollar employees contribute to the plan. *This amount can vary by state.

What Expenses Can be Reimbursed Using an FSA?
Healthcare FSA: An account option used to pay for out-of-pocket medical care expenses, such as deductibles, prescriptions, check-ups, and more.

Limited FSA: An account option for employees enrolled in an HSA that can be used for qualified dental, vision, and preventative care expenses.

Dependent Care FSA: This account can be used to pay for eligible child and adult care services, such as preschool, before or after school programs, daycare, and more.
