What is Flex Spending?
A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a special non-taxed account designed to save you money on medical and dependent care (day care) expenses.
Employees may set up pre-tax flexible spending accounts up to $5,000 for:
Medical and dental costs not paid by the City’s benefit plan.
This includes vision care expenses and over-the-counter drugs.
For the Plan Year 2012, the City has set up a Medical Flex Spending Account for each eligible employee. The City has deposited money in an account to use for unreimbursed eligible medical expenses.
