Flexible Spending Account (Health Care Savings)

The Flexible Savings Account (or Health Care Savings Account) is a voluntary employee benefit plan which permits employees to pay for certain eligible expenses with pre-tax dollars.

This benefit allows an employee to direct a portion of his or her salary on a pre-tax basis to an account to be used to pay for medical, dental vision care or other health-related expenses that are not covered or reimbursed under any other plan. By doing this, an employee may realize tax savings on the amount set aside. The amount saved is dependent on the individual's tax rate.
