Medical Flexible Spending Account
Participants in a medical flexible spending account (FSA) set aside a portion of their salaries before taxes are deducted to pay for anticipated, qualifying medical expenses. You may use a provided debit card when paying for qualifying medical expenses, or you may submit claims for reimbursement. All benefits-eligible employees may enroll in an FSA, even if you don't participate in health coverage through MCPS. There is a yearly limit to how much you can contribute to your medical FSA, as well as deadlines imposed by the IRS for claim submission.
