How much can I contribute my LEX HCFSA?
With a LEX HCFSA, you can set aside anywhere from a minimum of $100 up to $2,650 per benefit period (plan year). As with a Health Care FSA (HCFSA), the maximum annual allotment for a LEX HCFSA is $2,650 per covered employee, or $5,300 for a "federal couple," where both spouses are covered under the FSAFEDS Program.
However there is no household limit for a LEX HCFSA, so you or your spouse may enroll through FSAFEDS or another plan. Thus, the combined LEX HCFSA election for a couple may exceed the $2,650 FSAFEDS maximum.
Please note: Under IRS rules, you are not eligible to contribute to an HSA and be enrolled in a FSAFEDS general-purpose HCFSA at the same time. And, if your spouse is covered separately under a non-HSA plan, his or her expenses are not eligible under your LEX HCFSA, and your expenses are not eligible under your spouse's general-purpose FSA.
