2021-2022 Benefits Guide
You can receive reimbursement from your Health Care FSA for eligible medical and dental expenses
incurred by you or an eligible dependent using your pre-tax dollars. Claims will be processed through Proficient Benefits Solution. The maximum amount you may contribute to your Health Care FSA for plan year 2021-2022 is $2,750. Employees who enroll in the HDHP medical plan will receive FSA funds from the EAA and the amount is
pro-rated if you are a new hire. Please refer to the table on the right for the plan year amount. If you have funds remaining at the end of the plan year, a maximum of $550 will carry over to the next plan year while any funds in excess of $550 will be forfeited.
EAA FSA CONTRIBUTION
The entire annual amount is prefunded at the beginning of the plan year for immediate use on eligible expenses for current employees. You must enroll as a new hire for the FSA or enroll for the FSA every year during open enrollment or after a qualifying life event. The IRS publishes information on FSAs and eligible expenses on their website. If you have questions about an expense, please contact Proficient at (210) 659-8100, option 1. You may also view a list of eligible expenses on the Proficient Benefits Solution website. A Dependent Care FSA offers an opportunity to save money on daycare expenses for eligible dependents. The maximum amount you may contribute to your Dependent Care FSA is $5,000 for individuals or married couples filing jointly or $2,500 for a married person filing separately. Also, the person whose daycare expenses you are claiming must satisfy the definition of a Tax Dependent, per IRS regulations. If you are a new hire and enrolling mid-year, you may want to choose a lower annual amount now and then increase it during open enrollment for the next year. For example, if you are hired in June and you choose a $4,000 annual contribution amount, that amount is divided by the number of payrolls left in the plan year (October – September) and that amount will be deducted from each paycheck (i.e. you elect $5,000, there are 7 pay periods remaining in the plan year, $714.28 will be deducted from each paycheck). You can receive reimbursement from your Dependent Care FSA for expenses that have already been incurred and only up to the dollar amount that has already been deposited into your account. If you have funds remaining at the end of plan year these funds will be forfeited. Dependent Care FSA
