The holiday season has begun, and the new year is approaching. While it is time to enjoy, relax and cherish the time with your family, don’t forget to check the balance in your Flexible Spending Account.
A flexible spending account, or FSA, is an account in which you deposit money throughout the year to take care of any out-of-the-pocket healthcare expenses that are not covered by insurance. The amount is deducted before paying taxes to the government and, therefore, is tax-free. Your employer may be able to set up an FSA for you.
FSA funds can be utilized for the following:
FSA funds can be spent either through an FSA claim form or an FSA Flexcard. However, it is important to remember that the funds must be utilized by the year-end. Any balance left in an FSA at year’s end goes back to the employer. In some cases, you can carry forward some funds to the following year.
HPFY hosts a wide variety of FSA-approved medical equipment. We also accept the FSA Debit card. Here are some of the top FSA-approved respiratory product suggestions:
