Healthcare Flexible Spending Account
A Healthcare Flexible Spending Account will allow an employee to pay for unreimbursed healthcare costs on a pre-tax basis. Allowable expenses are those medical, dental and other healthcare costs which are generally deductible on Schedule ‘A’ of Form 1040, without regard to the exclusion of 7.5% of Adjusted Gross Income. An employee will be reimbursed up to the employer’s specified election amount.
