Flexible Spending Accounts
Mountaineer Flexible Benefits offers WVU employees the opportunity to take advantage of Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), administered through PayFlex.
FSAs were previously administered through WageWorks.
Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
A Health Care FSA is used to pay for eligible medical expenses which aren’t covered by your insurance or other plan. These expenses can be incurred by you, your spouse, a qualifying child or relative. Your full annual contribution amount is available at the beginning of the plan year (July 1), so you don't have to wait for the money to accumulate.
The Health Care FSA is administered by PayFlex.
To find a full list of eligible medical expenses, visit PayFlex eligible health care expenses.
