Most Popular Questions

If I have a Health Savings Account (HSA), how does that affect my FSAFEDS eligibility?

A Health Savings Account (HSA) and Health Care FSA (HCFSA) are both funded with pretax dollars. As a result, IRS rules state participants cannot have money contributed to both a HCFSA and a HSA in the same plan year. Instead, enrollees with HSAs are allowed to participate in a Limited Expense Health Care FSA (LEX HCFSA). The LEX HCFSA allows you to set aside pre-tax salary dollars to pay for eligible dental and vision expenses, since by law health care funds are ineligible.

Regardless of the type of health plan you are enrolled in, you may still be eligible for a Dependent Care FSA which allows you to set aside pre-tax salary dollars to pay for child care and elder care for those individuals you can claim on your federal tax return.

FSAFEDS is not involved in the FEHB HDHP offering, so if you have questions regarding HDHPs or HSAs, please visit www.opm.gov.
