Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are health benefit accounts that allow you to contribute a portion of your salary or wages (before taxes) to cover medical expenses that you would otherwise pay for out of pocket. If you’re unsure whether or not you have an FSA or HSA, please be sure to check with your employer or plan administrator.

If your card is declined, contact your employer or plan administrator for the account. The majority of card declines are because FSA funds have expired, new FSA/HSA cards have been issued, or the accounts have not had funds placed in them yet. Generally, you can find the number to your plan administrator on the back of your FSA or HSA card.
Purchasing ineligible products or services with the card may require you to report them and pay additional taxes. Contact your plan administrator or employer for more information. Contact your plan administrator or employer for more information on what items are eligible for purchase.
