Health Flexible Spending Account

Return to Flexible Spending Accounts

EOBHealth Accounts cover medical, dental and vision expenses that are only partially covered or not covered at all by your insurance, including insurance deductibles, insurance co-payments and over-the-counter medications.

Health FSA Annual Election Amount

If you make an election under the Health FSA, the amount that you elect will be immediately credited to the account in your name. Starting on the first day of the Plan Year, you will be entitled to be reimbursed for claims up to the entire elected amount at any time during the Plan Year, even if the total salary reduction contributions that you have made to your Health FSA are less than the total amount of claims that you have submitted.

Please Note: The Health Flexible Spending Account is the only account where participants have access to their full annual election immediately. All other accounts accrue the election amount on a per pay deduction basis.
