The Benefits of an FSA

What health and savings benefits do you offer your employees? Nowadays, it’s common for employers to assist their employees with their medical expenses. If you don’t do it already, FSAs are a great place to start!

Flexible spending accounts (FSAs) are an employer sponsored benefit that allows employees to set aside money on a pre-tax basis for qualified medical and/or child care expenses. There are a few different types of FSAs: medical, dependent care, and limited purpose. A medical FSA covers the insurance deductible, co-payments and coinsurance, prescriptions, and dental or vision expenses. A dependent care FSA covers certain expenses to care for dependents while the legal guardian is at work. This often means childcare, but it can also be used for dependents of any age who are physically or mentally incapable of self-care. The limited purpose FSA is meant to be used in conjunction with a health savings account (HSA); it can be used to cover dental and vision expenses with pre-tax funds, while still allowing the user to retain their HSA eligibility.
