The PEBB Program offers a medical flexible spending account (FSA) program that allows you to set aside money from each paycheck—before taxes—to pay for out-of-pocket health expenses. The FSA is only offered to PEBB benefits-eligible state and higher-education employees.
How the FSA can help you
- Setting aside a portion of your pay with an FSA reduces your annual taxable income and helps you pay for out-of-pocket health expenses.
- The full amount you set aside for your calendar FSA contribution is available on your first day of coverage for expenses.
- Your FSA helps you pay for deductibles, copays, coinsurance, dental, vision and many other expenses.
- You can use your FSA for your or your dependent's health care expenses, even if they are not enrolled in your PEBB medical or dental plan.
