Flexible Reimbursement Accounts

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) allow employees to pay for eligible health (medical, dental and vision) and/or dependent care expenses with pre-tax dollars. 

How It Works

Employees pay into the flexible spending accounts via pre-tax payroll deductions withheld throughout the calendar year. These dollars are held in a FSA account and are not subject to federal, state or Social Security taxes. Reimbursements are made as employees incur out-of-pocket expenses for qualifying health and/or dependent care services.

These Flexible Spending Accounts are managed by a third-party administrator, Crosby Benefits. You can contact Crosby Benefits at 1-800-462-2235.

Once you have completed a Flexible Spending Account enrollment form, you may set up an account with Crosby to submit claims for reimbursement, check account balances and claims in process.
