CARES Act Handout

CARES Act Handout

The CARES Act eliminates the requirement that over-the-counter medicines and drugs must be prescribed in order to be considered a qualified medical expense for HSAs, health flexible spending arrangements (FSAs), health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), and Archer medical savings accounts (MSAs).

FSA Enrollment

FSA Enrollment

It’s easy to save money with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). You will pay the same amount for health care initially - but you’ll receive savings when you submit receipts for expenses that are then reimbursed from your tax free FSA. The health care FSA shields your out-of-pocket health care expenses from taxes. You select an amount to be shielded, increments of which are set aside from your paychecks during the year. FSA funds can only be used for your eligible dependents claimed on your yearly IRS tax returns.
