A Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA) provides a way to pay for certain health care expenses with before-tax dollars. Covered expenses include co-pays, deductibles, prescriptions, any dozens of other health-related items not covered by a health insurance plan. The advantage is that you will report less taxable income, contributing up to $5000 per year, which means you save money.
A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) provides a way to pay for eligible expenses to care for children under age 13 or other dependents in need of full-time care. You can contribute up to $3000 of pre-tax funds per year. This adds up to more savings for you.
You can contribute from 1 percent to 50 percent of your pre-tax earnings up to the IRS maximum. Methodist will match your contributions up to 100 percent of the first 3 percent that you save, and you’re fully vested after six years of service. Methodist Healthcare provides FREE financial education courses to help you make wise decisions about your retirement, savings and other investment decisions.
