Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

Flexible spending accounts (FSAs) are personal accounts generally funded solely by employees. FSAs help reduce members’ tax liability when they set aside money for medical expenses or dependent care (also known as a Dependent Care Account). Employers benefit by offering FSAs because their FICA taxes may be lowered (participation reduces employees’ taxable income).

Please note: BlueSaver FSAs (when paired with a high deductible health plan) are available to groups of 100+ employees.
