The FSA account allows you to pay for health care expenses that are not covered or partially covered by your plan at a special tax advantage. You fund your account with simple paycheck deductions which are pre-taxed. For a detailed list of covered expenses visit TASC.
You will receive an easy to use debit card for the account to use for eligible expenses. You will be asked to submit substantiation for any purchases except co-pays. You can also file paper based claims if you do not wish to use the debit card.
If you are enrolled in the HSA, you can participate in a limited FSA. The limited FSA can only be used for dental & vision.
