A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a pre-tax account that helps employees pay qualified deductibles, copays, prescriptions, dental and vision care costs, and some over-the-counter products.
When an employer chooses one of our preferred FSA vendors to administer its company’s FSA, employees will have the value-added benefits of our integrated services1:
- Preferred Pricing – offers deep discounts on vendor administration fees and standard member education materials are automatically included in pricing.
- Simple Process – we share secure, daily claims and eligibility feeds for hassle-free membership updates, expense reimbursement and claim substantiation. Online service is 24/7. Employees can view their account balances and recent transactions.
Preferred FSA vendors can administer other spending accounts2 including:
- Dependent Care FSAs (DCFSA)
- Limited Purpose FSAs (LPFSA)
