Flexible Spending Accounts Change in 2013

The New Year is bringing a change to your Flexible Spending Account. More specifically, health care reform created annual contribution limits for FSA plans. For plan years starting on Jan. 1, 2013, the new limit is $2,500 per person.

WebMD blogged about the health care change and mentioned FSAstore. The post referenced our Product Eligibility List to help review what is or isn’t covered under your FSA. Check out the blog, and take a look at thousands of FSA eligible products at FSAstore.com!

    This is a terrific blog, and well organized (I can only hope to do the same at http://www.flexspendingaccounts.com). It’s excellent that you mention that change, and also how people need to look at a list of what is and isn’t covered in order to decide how much to set aside – my fear is that people will paradoxically put aside too much since the limits are going down, thinking that there is some sort of inverse relationship. Anyway, great post.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughtful feedback, Sidney! A simple way to eliminate concerns about how much to put aside for an FSA is to carefully calculate annual health spending before the plan year starts. The fear you point out is legitimate, but by estimating spending, people will know exactly where they stand throughout their FSA plan year. At FSAstore, we offer an FSA Calculator that can help calculate spending: http://fsastore.com/services/FSAcalculator.aspx.
