Healthcare Flexible Spending Account
with Carry Over
A WageWorks® Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a pre-tax benefit account used to pay for eligible medical, dental, and vision care expenses that aren’t covered by your insurance plan.
Why You Need It
How It Works
Simply decide how much to contribute, and funds are withdrawn from your paycheck for deposit into your account before taxes are deducted. Your total annual election amount is available on day one of your plan year.
This new Healthcare FSA lets you carry over up to $500 in account balances from one plan year to the next. With far less risk of “use it or lose it,” there’s no reason not to take advantage of the tax savings this year and every year.
How You Manage It
With a variety of payment and reimbursement options, your WageWorks
Healthcare FSA is easy to use. The convenient WageWorks Healthcare Card associated with your account can be used to pay for hundreds of eligible healthcare products and services for you, your spouse, and your dependents.
Manage your account via a secure website on any computer or mobile device connected to the Internet or via the WageWorks EZ Receipts® app.
You can contribute up to a maximum of $2,600 to your WageWorks Healthcare FSA. A different limit may apply to you, according to your employer’s plan.
