Flexible Reimbursement Accounts

Flexible Reimbursement Accounts (FSA) permit employees to set aside a portion of their salary to pay for nonreimbursed health-care (medical, dental and vision) and dependent-care expenses with "before tax" dollars. Money deducted from employees' pay into an FSA is not subject to federal, state or Social Security taxes, resulting in payroll savings.

How It Works

Employees pay into the reimbursement accounts via payroll deductions throughout the calendar year. Reimbursements are made as employees incur out-of-pocket expenses for qualifying health-care and/or dependent-care services

The Flexible Reimbursement Accounts are managed by a third-party administrator, Crosby Benefit Systems. You can contact Crosby Benefit Systems at 1-800-462-2235.

You can submit claims for reimbursement, check account balances and claims in process when you login to My Crosby Benefits.
