Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

Mountaineer Flexible Benefits offers WVU employees the opportunity to take advantage of Medical and Dependent Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs).

A Medical FSA is used to pay for eligible medical expenses which aren’t covered by your insurance or other plan. These expenses can be incurred by you, your spouse, a qualifying child o relative. Your full annual contribution amount is available at the beginning of the plan year.

The Dependent Care FSA is a great way to pay for eligible dependent care expenses such as after school care, baby-sitting fees, elder care services, nursery and preschool. Eligible dependents include your qualifying child, spouse and/or relative.
