There are two options available: The Dependent Care Reimbursement Plan for dependent care expenses and the Healthcare Flexible Spending Account for health-related expenses .

The provider for both plans is Total Administrative Services Corporation (TASC).

Healthcare Flexible Spending Account

The Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (HFSA) allows you to stretch your budget further. The HFSA is a voluntary pre-tax benefit plan that allows you to set aside money from your paycheck to be used to pay the out-of-pocket medical, prescription, dental and vision expenses that you and your eligible dependents incur.

You never pay taxes on the money you put into your account, giving you more bang for your buck when you use pre-tax money to reimburse qualified healthcare expenses.

How does it work?

After enrollment, you will receive a TASC Card. Use your TASC Card to pay for eligible expenses at the point of purchase instead of paying out-of-pocket and requesting a reimbursement.

Selecting an Election Amount

Four factors to keep in mind when selecting an election amount:

  1. Your total election amount is available on May 1, so the HFSA can help regulate your healthcare spending and take care of the unexpected expenses along the way.
  2. The minimum annual election amount is $240, and the maximum is $2,550.
  3. As an HFSA participant, you have a 90-day period (May 1 - July 31) to file claims and request reimbursement for expenses incurred prior to the end of the HFSA Plan Year.
  4. Contributions are based on 24 pay periods.

The HFSA maximum rollover amount has increased to $500. If you re-enroll for a new HFSA account for plan year. The minimum amount of rollover is $50. Any amount left above $500 will be forfeited.

If you have funds remaining but do not enroll, if you are an active employee, you will qualify for the rollover as well.
