Flexible Spending Accounts (ITS)
What is this service?
The Individual Tax Savings (ITS) Flexible Spending Account (FSA) program is a tax-qualified program for employees to pay for the uncovered or unreimbursed portions of qualified medical costs or dependent care costs.
HEALTH CARE FSA (HCFSA)
A Health Care FSA (HCFSA) pays for the uncovered or unreimbursed portions of qualified medical costs.
DEPENDENT CARE FSA (DCFSA)
A Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA) allows you to pay eligible expenses for dependent care with pre-tax dollars.
ENROLLMENT AND GENERAL INFORMATION
All employee contributions to FSAs are made from pre-tax earnings, thereby increasing your disposable income. There are no employer contributions to the FSA (ITS) program. Your FSA (ITS) Program is self-administered by the County. By law, retirees are not eligible to maintain FSAs.
If you would like to establish a HCFSA or DCFSA, you must do so within the thirty-one (31) days of employment or during Open Enrollment on an annual basis. Account elections will not automatically roll over to future years. An FSA ELECTION IS 100% VOLUNTARY. The FSA (ITS) Open Enrollment is held each fall. Eligible employees may elect up to $2,500 for a HCFSA and $5,000 for a DCFSA during the 2017 plan year.
Employees can file claims online through the Employee Self Service portal (ESS) or completing a paper healthcare claim form or dependent care claim form and sending it to the Auditor's office.
