What is an FSA? And how do I get reimbursed by my FSA?
A flexible spending account (FSA) is an employer-sponsored account that is an optional addition to healthcare insurance plans that allows you to set aside money pre-tax to be used on thousands of medical expenses. You can use an FSA to cover co-pays at the doctor's office, dental and eye care, even birthing, breastfeeding and other classes offered by Preconceive. By using an FSA, you effectively reduce taxable income, and cover expenses that you'd pay for out of pocket.
There are specific deadlines by which you must use the money in your FSA account. These deadlines vary, so it's best to contact your FSA administrator for details. To get reimbursed for using your FSA, you’ll either use an FSA debit card or submit a receipt for reimbursement to your FSA administrator. To ensure that a Preconceive service will be reimbursed by your FSA you should contact your administrator first. If you have an FSA debit card, your expenses should be auto-approved, but you may still need to submit additional receipts to your FSA administrator. It is recommended that you ask your administrator and hold on to receipts just in case.
