Flexible Spending Accounts
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) help you save money by allowing you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. Participants save an average of 30% on eligible expenses. The Health Care FSA can be used for eligible medical expenses. The Dependent Care FSA can be used for eligible child and dependent care expenses (daycare).
Benefit eligible employees have the option to enroll in these FSAs during Open Enrollment each year in October or after a qualifying life event. Active enrollment is required each year.
The MCC Flexible Spending Accounts are administered by HealthEquity. The HealthEquity Member Services team is available by call or chat 24/7 every day of the year.
