    How Does an FSA Work?

    You decide how much to contribute to each FSA on a plan-year basis up to the maximum allowable amounts. Your annual election will be divided by the number of pay periods and deducted evenly on a pre-tax base from each paycheck throughout the year. 

    You will receive a debit card from HealthEquity which can be used to pay for eligible health care expenses at the point of service. If you do not use your debit card, or if you have dependent care expenses to be reimbursed, submit a claim form and a bill or itemized receipt from the provider to HealthEquity. Keep all receipts in case HealthEquity requires you to verify the eligibility of a purchase. 

    Health Care FSA

    The Health Care FSA allows you to set aside money from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis (before income taxes are withheld) to pay for eligible out-of-pocket expenses, such as deductibles, copays, and other health-related expenses that are not paid by the medical, dental, or vision plans. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications are not eligible for reimbursement without a prescription. You may contribute up to the IRS maximum ($2,850) for the 2022 plan year. 

    Dependent Care FSA

    The Dependent Care FSA allows you to set aside money from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis for daycare expenses to allow you and your spouse to work or attend school full time. Eligible dependents are children under 13 years of age, a child over 13, a spouse, or an elderly parent residing in your house who is physically or mentally unable to care for himself or herself. Examples of eligible expenses are daycare facility fees, before-and-after school care, and in-home babysitting fees (income must be reported by your care provider). 

    You may contribute up to the IRS maximum to the dependent care FSA for the 2022 plan year if you are married and file a joint return or if you file a single or head of household return. If you are married and file separate returns, you can each elect half of the IRS maximum for the 2022 plan year.
