A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Plan allows you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses that you would have otherwise paid for with post-tax dollars.

There are three types of FSAs:

  1. The Health Care FSA is NOT available if you are enrolled in the High Deductible Health Plan medical plan and have established and contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA).
  2. In accordance with IRS regulations, the Dependent Care FSA Plan must be reviewed each year to ensure the Plan does not disproportionately benefit highly-compensated employees. If the Plan is found to be discriminatory, highly-compensated participants may have their annual dependent care FSA election amount reduced and will be notified mid-year accordingly.
  3. Annual limit is $2,500 if you are married but file taxes separately.
  4. The Limited FSA is only available to associates who establish an HSA.

Under all three plans:

  • The annual amount you elect to contribute is equally deducted from your paychecks and may not be changed or stopped unless you experience a qualifying life event.

  • Your qualified expenses must be incurred during the calendar year. You have until March 31 of the following year to submit these expenses for reimbursement; otherwise, you will forfeit the money in your account that is not spent.
  • AssuredPartners is the FSA Administrator for the FSA Plans.

For more detailed information, see the Summary Plan Description.

Rollover option
for the Health Care FSA

If you participate in the Health Care FSA (or Limited Health Care FSA for HSA participants), you have the option to rollover up to $610 of unused Health Care FSA funds at the end of 2023. You must have a balance of at least $50 to be able to rollover unused funds. The rollover amount of $610 does not impact the maximum election limit of $3,200 for the 2024 plan year (i.e., with the maximum election limit of $3,200 and a rollover amount of $610, a participant will have access to $3,810 for the 2024 year). The rollover of unused funds will occur after the claims submission deadline has passed for the previous plan year (March 31, 2024) and all claims are processed.
