Get Reimbursed for Eligible Expenses
Use your debit card or
file a claim for reimbursement:
- Save all itemized receipts
- You can’t use your Health Care FSA to pay for ineligible items (e.g., magazines, cosmetics) or dependent care expenses
- Can receive reimbursement automatically in your bank account
You have until
March 31 following the plan year to submit claims for services incurred through December 31 of the current Plan year.
* The $570 carryover does not count toward the IRS maximum for the following Plan year.
If you participate in the Limited-Use Health Care FSA, you may use your FSA for eligible medical and prescription drug expenses
after you meet your medical plan deductible. However, you may use your FSA immediately to pay for eligible dental and vision expenses.
If you leave DFIN during the Plan year, you can only submit FSA claims for services incurred up to your termination date. The exception is if you elect to continue your Health Care FSA coverage during your COBRA eligibility period and you pay your COBRA premiums. See the
Health Care Spending Program and Dependent Care Spending Program SPD for more information.
