The state offers the following types of FSAs:

Health Care FSAs: These allow you to put aside payroll deducted pre-tax dollars for eligible health care expenses not covered by any medical, dental, or vision plan for you and qualifying individuals.

  • General Purpose Health Care FSA (GPHC FSA) is the standard Health Care FSA the state traditionally has offered and will continue to offer. This FSA can be used for eligible health, prescription, dental, and vision expenses.
     
  • Limited Purpose Health Care FSA (LPHC FSA) is a Health Care FSA that can be used for eligible dental and vision expenses and is compatible with the State High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) with Health Savings Account (HSA) or any other HSA enrollment. 
     

Dependent Care FSA: This allows you to put aside payroll deducted pre-tax dollars for eligible child and elder-care expenses for your eligible dependents, so you can attend work, find work, or attend school. Dependent Care FSAs are not Health Care FSAs for your dependents.
