Maximizing Tax Savings Through Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

If you have a health insurance plan with SWEB, you are getting the best benefits, but did you know there’s a way to help reduce taxes for those out-of-pocket costs? Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) is a specific arrangement given by your employer to let you pay out-of-pocket costs in medical expenses with tax-free dollars. With benefits like FSA, you can pay for your health care costs such as:

  • Deductibles 
  • Copayments 
  • Coinsurance 
  • Pharmaceuticals  

How FSA Works

An FSA is also known as a Flexible Spending Arrangement and can be counted as a special account for you to put in finances to help pay for those out-of-pocket costs for your health care. Putting money under FSA means you don’t have to pay taxes with this money, and you’ll save money just for using these finances. 

How to Get FSA 

To claim an FSA, you must first ask your employer by submitting a claim. This form can help your employer provide a proper statement along with your medical history and expenses that may prove if the employee health insurance plan doesn’t typically cover these expenses. Once the process is complete, you’ll receive money to help reimburse those costs. Get approved for FSA by contacting your employer and providing details of your medical expenses.
