What is a FSA?

A flexible spending account (FSA) is a tax-advantaged financial account that can be set upas part of a benefit plan offered by an employer. An FSA allows an employee to set aside a portion of their earnings to pay for qualified expenses (as established in the cafeteria plan), most commonly for medical expenses. Money deducted from an employee's pay into an FSA is not subject to payroll taxes, resulting in substantial payroll tax savings (as much as 40%).

The most common type of flexible spending account, the medical expense FSA (also medical FSA or health FSA) are commonly offered with more traditional health plans and can help offset the high cost of medical treatment. Paper forms or an FSA debit card, also known as a Flexcard, may be used to access the account funds.
