Heard County Schools System provides two Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA’s) – the Health Care Account and the Dependent Child Care Account. Flexible Spending Accounts provide a way to pay for certain unreimbursed health care (Medical FSA) and dependent childcare expenses (Dependent FSA) with tax-free dollars. How? You contribute before-tax dollars directly from your pay to either or both Flexible Spending Accounts. Why? Because you save money, since the contributions are made before taxes. On average, every $1.00 you contribute to an FSA will only impact your take home pay by $0.70. These dollars are then used to pay for eligible expenses.
Members can use these accounts to purchase over-the-counter (OTC) medicines that had previously required a prescription.
They can also use the accounts to purchase menstrual products.
