The state offers both a medical and a day care flexible spending account option to employees as a way to decrease out of pocket expenses for these expenses. Under a provision of the Internal Revenue Codes, employees are allowed to payroll deduct a portion of their gross income on a pre-tax basis for the payment of their medical and day care expenses. Using pre-tax dollars to pay for out of pocket medical and day care expenses can reduce your costs by 30% or more depending on your tax bracket.
Effective July 1, 2013, Flex-Plan Services, Inc. will be administering our state health and day care flexible spending accounts (FSAs). Debit cards are available to flexible spending account participants. For plan details, please see the Flexible Spending Enrollment Kit and the Flex-Plan Services Summary Plan Description. To enroll, please complete the Flex-Plan FSA Enrollment Form and submit to your agency Human Resource office. For customer service, please contact Flex-Plan Services at 800-669-3539 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Note: TASC (Total Administrative Services Corporation) will administer the state medical and day care flexible spending accounts (FSAs) through June 30, 2013. If participants have not used all of the funds in their current (fiscal year 2013) FSA account by June 30th, they may still files claims with TASC for expenses incurred up to September 15, 2013.
