What is a Flexible Spending Account?

Like most people, your budget is tight these days. But with the convenience of a Flexible Spending Account, you can stretch your dollar even further - especially important when it comes to large expenses like daycare and doctor’s visits.

Also known as FSA, a Flexible Spending Account is typically offered to employees as a way to pay for medical goods and services and other expenses. The money is deducted from each paycheck, but is not subject to taxes, meaning more of it can go toward medical and child care bills.

FSA eligible purchases

Do you have an FSA through your employer? If so, you may be wondering which expenses can be paid for with this money. Although each plan varies, commonly covered goods and services may include:

  • Dental checkups and cleanings
  • Doctor's visit co-pays
  • Prescription, over-the-counter medicines and certain supplements*
  • Contact lens and eye care products*
  • Crutches, bandages, braces and other first-aid items*
  • Health and medical devices*
  • Daycare (covered by some specific plans)
(*A prescription may be required for these items, depending on your plan.)

Use it or lose it - Flexible Benefits

These flexible benefits offer an easy way to pay for the goods and services you use regularly. But there is one caveat - most plans require you to empty your account by the end of the year, or risk losing the pre-tax contributions you've saved up. So if you’ve been putting off that yearly physical, make that appointment today and make sure you take advantage of your FSA!
