Flexible Spending and Heath Savings accounts have similarities and differences. They are similar in that they both allow you to pay for medical, dental and vision expenses that are not covered by insurance. They differ in that Flexible Spending accounts have a "use it or lose it" policy while Health Savings accounts do not.
Health Savings accounts are linked to high deductible medical plans and help defer the deductible costs. When an employee chooses a high deductible medical plan they are given the option to set aside a portion of their payroll into an account to pay for medical expenses. This has become a popular option for many employers because of the cost savings realized in lower premiums. Some employers are using these savings by contributing directly into the employees Health Savings accounts as an incentive to enroll in a high deductible plan.
Flexible Spending accounts allow the employee to set aside money for expected medical expenses. It is very important to have an accurate estimate of medical expenses when using a Flexible Spending account because any unused portion is forfeited at the end of the plan year.
