Flexible Spending Account

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows you to reduce your taxable income by setting aside pre-tax dollars for health care expenses that are not covered under the County’s medical, prescription drug, dental and vision benefits and certain dependent care expenses. An FSA is like a personal account in which you can set aside a predetermined amount of money to cover qualified expenses. Contributing to an FSA, through payroll deduction, helps you make the most tax-effective use of your salary.

You can elect to participate in the following FSAs:

  • Health Care Reimbursement Account ($130.00 - $2550.00)
  • Dependent Care Reimbursement Account ($130.00 - $5000.00)
