Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) make it easy for you to set aside a portion of your pretax salary and use it to pay for eligible health care expenses.

You may contribute $5,000 per calendar year per household for Dependent Child Care FSA Expenses and $2,600 per calendar year per employee for Health Care FSA or Limited Purpose Health Care FSA Expenses.

HSA annual contributions may not exceed $3,400 if you have single coverage or $6,750 if you have non-single coverage. Individuals age 55 and over may make an additional $1,000 catch up contribution. Married individuals may each make a catch up contribution, although the maximum amount that can be contributed to one HSA for the calendar year is $7,750 (the $6,750 statutory maximum plus a $1,000 catch up contribution). Please note there is a 6% excise tax on any individual contribution that exceeds the allowed annual maximum.

We have four accounts:

Health Care FSA (EPO Only)

Health Care for eligible out-of-pocket medical, prescription drug, vision, and dental expenses.

Dependent Child Care FSA Can be used for certified day care expenses incurred for the care of your child(ren).

Limited Purpose Health Care FSA (PPO & HDHP Only)

Can be used for eligible out-of-pocket dental and vision expenses only.
Health Savings Account (PPO & HDHP Only) Health Care for eligible out-of-pocket medical, prescription drug, vision, and dental expenses.
