If you are enrolled in either of the Consumer Choice Plans with a Health Savings Account, you can participate in the Limited Purpose Health Flexible Spending Account.
Do you expect any dental or vision expenses during the plan year? If so, then you might want to open a Limited Purpose Health Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to save money.
This pre-tax feature allows you to save up to the IRS limit in your Health Savings Account while contributing up to $2,650 (pre-tax) per calendar year for non-medical reimbursable expenses such as dental or vision charges not covered under a group plan.
Qualified expenses eligible for reimbursement with a Limited Purpose Health FSA include:
Tax advantage accounts have certain tax advantages. Therefore, the IRS regulates all tax advantage accounts. By law, any funds not used for services during the year will be lost. In other words, you need to use the money in your account or you'll lose it. See the
www.irs.gov website for the complete list of qualified expenses, Publication 502.
