Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
GPISD offers two Flexible Spending Accounts, a Dependent Care Account and a Medical Reimbursement Account. Both accounts are used for qualified expenses as outlined by the IRS. The Dependent Care Account may be used to cover day care costs with qualified cay care providers for children under age 13 and who reside with you more than 50% of the year. Additonally a Dependent Care Account may be used for a qualifying dependent who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care, resides with you more than 50% of the year and is in need of care so that you and your spouse can work.
The Medical Reimbursement Account allows for you to pay for qualified medical expenses with pretax dollars. Both of these accounts are "use or lose" accounts; if the funds are not used by the annual published grace period, they are forfeited. The maximum annual contribution limits are set by the IRS. You must keep all itemized receipts to support your charges.

Health Savings Account (HSA)
An HSA is designed to help you pay for qualified medical expenses with pretax dollars. The annual maximum contribution limit is set by the IRS, and individuals age 55 or older may contribute an additional $1,000 annually. This is NOT a "use or lose" account, and funds roll over year to year. Individuals contributing to an HSA must also be enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan, and may not be contributing to an FSA at the same time. HSA contributions may be stopped, increased or decreased anytime throughout the year. For more information about an HSA please contact Employee Benefits.
