Health Plan Flexible Spending Account Fsa

Definition of "Health plan flexible spending account (fsa)"

Central fund into which employees contribute untaxed earnings to pay for the insurance premiums and uninsured medical costs. When the employee submits evidence of unreimbursed medical expenses, the employee is then indemnified. This indemnification fund uses untaxed dollars to pay for family health care costs that are not covered by the employer's health care plan. Examples would include elective surgery, eyeglasses, orthodontia, and the deductibles and coinsurance requirements that are part of the insured medical claims. The amount that the employee contributes to this account must be spent in total during that year. If this amount or any part thereof is not spent during that year, it is forfeited in total to the employer.
