Flexible Spending Account

(866) 451-3399

The FCPS FSA medical expense contract has been amended to allow eligible over-the-counter (OTC) items to be purchased without a prescription.  This amendment was made retroactive to January 1, 2020 in accordance with the CARES ACT (COVID-3 Stimulus Bill).  You may use the WEX database to search for eligible items at:  https://www.wexinc.com/insights/benefits-toolkit/eligible-expenses/

WEX is the administrator of the Flexible spending accounts (FSAs), which allows an employee to contribute on a pretax basis to an account that he or she can then use to pay for qualifying expenses. Depending on the type of FSA, those expenses might include childcare or medical costs that are not covered by health, dental or vision insurance. At the end of the plan year, any unspent money in an FSA is forfeited, with the exception of the health care flexible spending accounts that permits employees to rollover up to $500 per plan year to the next year. You must re-elect your FSA each plan year and cannot make changes to your election unless you have a “qualifying life event” once your election has been made for the plan year.
