EBSCO offers three flexible spending account options that allow employees to set aside money from their paycheck before it is taxed to pay for certain healthcare and dependent care expenses as defined by the IRS.
Medical Spending Account — The Medical Spending Account is available for employees on the Platinum or Gold Medical Plans, and it allows for the deferment of funds for projected healthcare expenses on a pre-tax basis.
Limited Purpose — The Limited Purpose Spending Account is an option for employees on the Silver Medical Plan. This type of account can be used for reimbursement of qualifying dental and vision expenses.
