Flexible Spending Account
A flexible spending account, or FSA, is a great introductory option. Your employees can learn how this plan works without any complicated rules. You can pair it with any Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan health plan.
An FSA can be paired with any Blue Cross health plan. This type of account can be funded by both you and your employee based on IRS guidelines. It is a use it or lose it type of account. If your employee doesn't use the funds in this account, you can keep them. Employers may choose to allow employees to carry up to $500 into the next year. The full annual contribution amount is immediately available for use at the beginning of the plan year.
Employees put money into their FSA through payroll deduction only. This helps them save money by reducing their taxable income.
