Flexible Spending Accounts Summary

The IRS has set the maximum limit that you can elect for the health care spending account at $2,500 for 2014. The dependent care maximum remains at $5,000 for 2014.

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows employees to use before-tax dollars to pay for eligible out-of-pocket expenses. Hampshire College has established two types of flexible spending accounts through Benefit Strategies.

  • Health Care Spending Account: Employees can contribute a maximum of $2,500 to pay for eligible health care expenses (including dental expenses).
  • Dependent Care Spending Account: Employees can contribute a maximum of $5,000 to pay for eligible dependent care expenses.

Access your flexible spending dollars using the FlexExpress Visa Debit Card. No waiting for reimbursement; simply use your card to pay for qualified medical, dental, and dependent care expenses.
