FSA

  • A Flexible Spending Account (also known as a flexible spending arrangement) is a special account you put money into that you use to pay for certain out-of-pocket health care costs.

 

  • You don’t pay taxes on this money. This means you’ll save an amount equal to the taxes you would have paid on the money you set aside.

 

  • You can use funds in your FSA to pay for certain medical expenses for you, your spouse if you’re married, and your dependents.
