How Your WageWorks Healthcare FSA Works
Simply decide how much to contribute to your WageWorks® Healthcare FSA, and funds are withdrawn from each paycheck for deposit into your account before taxes are deducted. Your total annual election amount is available on day one of your plan year.
Be sure to estimate your annual healthcare expenses and make your contributions carefully. You forfeit any money left unspent in your Healthcare FSA at the end of your plan year. Fortunately, you have a grace period of up to 2-½ months after your plan year ends during which you can spend down money left in your account.
Using Your WageWorks Healthcare FSA
With a variety of payment and reimbursement options, your WageWorks Healthcare FSA is easy to use.
Pay Your Provider
Arrange for convenient direct payments to your healthcare provider. Simply access your account online and fill out a simple form to have eligible expenses paid directly from your account.
Pay You Back
Arrange for account funds to be transferred to your checking account or a check to be mailed to reimburse you for eligible expenses you've already paid.
Pay by WageWorks Healthcare Card
Use the convenient WageWorks Healthcare Card associated with your account to pay for hundreds of eligible healthcare products and services for you, your spouse, and your dependents. It works like a debit card. Money is deducted directly from your account.
