Flexible Spending Account

Flex Made Easy

 

FSAs provide you with an important tax advantage that can help you pay health care and dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis. By anticipating your family’s health care and dependent care costs for the next year, you can lower your taxable income. Flex Made Easy will continue to be the administrator of this program in 2022.

 

Health Care Reimbursement FSA

This program lets USD 231 employees pay for certain IRS-approved medical care expenses not covered by their insurance plan with pre-tax dollars.

The Health Care FSA maximum in 2022 will be $2,850 (per IRS rules).

Some examples include:

  • Deductibles

  • Copays

  • Coinsurance

  • Vision services, including contact lenses, contact lens solution, eye examinations, and eyeglasses

  • Dental services and orthodontia

  • Hearing services, including hearing aids and batteries

  • Chiropractic services

  • As of January 1, 2020, over the counter drugs/medications are covered under the FSA without a prescription.  Menstrual products are also included as a qualifying expense.

 

Note: If you are participating in the Health Savings Account, IRS regulations state you are not permitted to enroll in the traditional Health FSA program.

 

Dependent Day Care FSA

The Dependent Day Care FSA lets USD 231 employees use pre-tax dollars towards qualified

dependent day care expenses such as caring for children under the age of 13 or caring for disabled dependents over the age of 13 (as long as you and your spouse (if married) are working full-time).

 

The annual maximum amount you may contribute to the Dependent Care FSA is $5,000 per household (or $2,500 each if married and filing separately) per calendar year.

 

Examples include: The cost of child(ren) or disabled-dependent care, the cost for an individual to provide care either in or outside of your home, nursery schools & preschools (excluding kindergarten and educational costs).
