Flexible Spending Accounts
- Healthcare Payment (Debit) Card - Your account comes with a healthcare payment card, sometimes called an FSA debit card, to quickly and easily access Healthcare FSA funds. Since there is no Personal Identification Number (PIN) associated with the card, you use it like you would a credit card, and funds are deducted directly from your account. In many cases, card transactions are automatically approved. However, you may be required to submit itemized receipts for some transactions. Be sure to always keep all documentation of your payments.
- Online Claims Submission - If you do not use your debit card, you have the option to quickly and easily create a secure claim online. Once you submit your receipts, ConnectYourCare will send your reimbursement within a few days. There is no minimum amount for reimbursement.
Please note, we will be updating our system from Saturday, May 18 at 8:00 PM Eastern though 12:00 PM Eastern on Sunday, May 19. The system will be unavailable during this time. Payment cards will not be affected.
What is a Flexible Spending Account? A Flexible Spending Account is an account that allows you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for qualified healthcare or dependent day care expenses. You choose how much money you want to contribute to an FSA at the beginning of each plan year and can access these funds throughout the year. All FSA contributions are pre-tax, which means you save money by not paying taxes on the amounts you set aside to pay for eligible healthcare and dependent care expenses.
What is eligible? There are hundreds of eligible expenses for your FSA funds, including prescriptions, over-the-counter items*, doctor office co-pays, health insurance deductibles and coinsurance for you, your spouse or tax dependents. See Eligible Healthcare FSA Expenses and Eligible Dependent Care FSA Expenses for more information.
