Health Care FSA

Important information about your FSA
Recent legislation has eliminated the limit on the Health Care and/or Dependent Care FSA balance you can carry over into 2022. Carry over funds will be available immediately.

What you need to know

The Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) helps you set aside money to pay for health care expenses you’ll have during the year. The pluses: You contribute pretax income, so you’re paying no taxes on your contributions—plus, your contributions reduce your taxable income.

Save two ways when you enroll in an FSA

This short video shows you how.

How It Works

When you elect your benefits as a new employee or during annual open enrollment, you choose your FSA contribution level for the calendar year ($2,850 in 2022).

During every open enrollment period, you’ll elect the amount you want to contribute to your FSA the following year. Your election does not automatically roll over from year to year.

Your pretax paycheck contributions are deposited directly into your Health Care FSA, which is administered by HSA Bank.

You can use your FSA to pay for eligible expenses, including:

  • Copays and coinsurance
  • Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications (with a doctor’s prescription)
  • Medical equipment, like crutches, and supplies such as bandages
  • Vision care, like eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Dental expenses, such as fillings and braces

When you have eligible expenses, you can use your FSA debit card to pay for them. Or, you can submit receipts and file a claim for reimbursement.

Managing Your Health Care FSA

You set up and manage your FSA on the HSA Bank website or via the mobile app. Then, you can upload receipts and submit claims, pay providers, and track your account balance and transactions.

You have until March 31 of the following year to submit receipts for reimbursement.
