If you have established a Section 125 plan, spending accounts give your employees the flexibility to use pre-tax dollars to pay for medical, dental, vision, prescriptions, and other qualified medical expenses — saving them money. And our team works with you to make it easier than ever to pair a spending account to your health plan.
Every health plan should be paired with a spending account. This chart will help you find the right spending account for your business.
|Health Plan Type||Employee Premium/Deductible||Employee Out-of-Pocket Expense||Spending Account Pairing|
|Qualified High-Deductible Health Plan||Low/High||Higher||Health Savings Account + Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account|
|Traditional Plans||High/Low||Lower||Flexible Spending Account and Health Reimbursement Arrangement|
|Traditional Health Plan w/ higher deductible||Low/High||Higher||Flexible Spending Account and Health Reimbursement Arrangement|
These spending accounts can be paired with any plan to help your employees pay for qualified transportation, child care, and even some adult care expenses.
