Flexible Spending - Health Care
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) help you save money by allowing you to pay for eligible health care expenses with pretax dollars. Your contribution to an FSA will reduce your taxable income.

As an RF employee, you may set aside up to $2,600 each year on a pre-tax basis to pay for health, dental, and vision care expenses that are not covered by insurance. Eligible expenses include deductibles, copays and over-the-counter medications (when prescribed by your doctor).

If you work at least 50 percent of full-time you are eligible to enroll in Health Care FSA.

You can begin deductions six months after your date of hire or eligibility date.


Continuation of coverage

Except as provided by COBRA, reimbursement for health care expenses is only allowed after termination of employment if the expenses were incurred prior to your termination at the RF.

Should you experience a qualifying event, such as termination of employment or change in eligible status, you may choose to continue your Health Care FSA. Please contact your campus benefits office for more information.
