Flexible Spending Accounts
A flexible spending account (FSA) lets you set aside money to help pay for health and dependent care expenses. You don’t pay taxes on the money you contribute, which saves you money. You must sign up each year, including
- Health Care FSA — Use it for eligible health care expenses like medical, pharmacy, dental and vision services and supplies.
- Dependent Care FSA — Use it for eligible dependent care expenses like day care, elder care services and programs.
To view account activity, balances and to submit claim forms for either your Health Care or Dependent Care FSA, go to myuhc.com. A list of eligible Health Care FSA items can be found on Insider or fsastore.com.
