Flexible Spending Accounts

The City of Plano offers two types of accounts:

  • Health Care FSA
  • Dependent Care FSA

The FSA accounts allow you to contribute through payroll deduction on a tax-free basis for use on expenses throughout the calendar year. The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is administered by UnitedHealthcare (UHC).

If you elect to contribute to one or both of these accounts, you choose an annual amount to be deducted from each paycheck (a total of 24 paychecks) and deposited into your FSA throughout the year. Your premiums are deducted from the first two paychecks of each month before you pay taxes, resulting in savings by reducing your taxable income. When you incur eligible health care or dependent care expenses, use these accounts to reimburse yourself up to the amount you elected to contribute to the account for the year.

A complete list of eligible expenses is available at myuhc.com. Claims can be faxed or mailed to UHC and claim forms are available at myuhc.com.
