For most high-deductible health plan (HDHP) participants, flexible spending accounts (FSAs) are often overshadowed by the option of a health savings account (HSA). What most employees don’t realize is that they can utilize the benefits of both an FSA and an HSA to maximize their savings and plan for the future without having to choose one account over the other. While there are slight feature differences between the accounts, they can co-exist and provide separate — but beneficial — opportunities for your people via an HSA-compatible FSA.
Unlike HSAs, FSAs are not linked specifically to HDHPs and are typically use-it or lose-it plans unless the employer takes advantage of the carry-over provision that allows employees to roll over a maximum of $500 to the following year with no impact to the new year’s maximum. This is useful for those employees who are not participating in an HDHP while still giving the option for those who do to use both accounts together for maximized savings.
Start with the basics by educating them on the benefits. Make it clear to your people that the plans can coexist conveniently with no extra work for them; gone are the days of carrying around multiple debit cards as the accounts can be easily linked and accessed instantaneously. And with our mobile app and innovative payment systems, transactions can be seen in real time and balance information can be accessed immediately, including any reimbursement payments, outstanding claims or e-receipts.
The flexibility of this reimbursement account doesn’t stop there. In addition to a limited purpose FSA, employees can also save tax dollars by enrolling in a Dependent Care FSA. Alight’s Dependent Care FSA administration solution allows pre-tax dollars to cover qualified child or adult daycare expenses, while actively working.
No matter your employees’ situation, an HSA-compatible FSA can help maximize their savings while providing flexible options to support their needs. Want to learn more about our reimbursement account solutions or how you can optimize your employees’ savings?
