Flexible Spending Accounts

Tulane University offers Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) under the administration of WageWorks. FSAs are designed to give you a tax-free way to pay for eligible health care and dependent care expenses that you would normally pay for on an after-tax basis. See summary of the two FSA programs Tulane offers:

  • A Healthcare FSA (HCRA) reimburses you for eligible, out-of-pocket medical, dental, and vision expenses for you and your qualified dependents up to the amount of your annual contribution. Expenses are not claimed on your income tax return. 
  • A Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA) reimburses you for qualified child care and elder day care or custodial elder care expenses incurred so that you (and if married, your spouse) can work. Expenses are not claimed on your income tax return and cannot be used for medical expenses.
