About Flexible Spending Accounts
Cobb County Government offers employees two Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA's):
- Health Care Account
- Dependent Child Care Account
Flexible Spending accounts provide a way for you to pay for certain unreimbursed health care and dependent child care expenses with tax-free dollars. You contribute before-tax dollars directly from your pay to either or both Flexible Spending Account.
Why? Because you save money since the contributions are made before taxes. This is comparable to every $1.00 you elect only affecting your take-home pay by about $0.70.
All with the convenience of a MasterCard! Current FSA Participants must keep their card until the imprinted expiration date. Annual Elections are credited each year on January 1st. Replacement Cards are $7.50 and will be deducted from your FSA account.
Limits are :
- $5,000 to Dependent Child Care Accounts ($2,500 if married and filing separate returns)
- $2,700 in Medical Health Care Accounts
You can access your MedCom accounts online at the WealthCare Portal for MedCom. (Registration ID is MCOCOBCTY)
Health Care Accounts and Child Care Accounts are completely separate. You cannot use money set aside in your Health Care Account for Child Care expenses and vice versa. If you have questions about the FSA benefit, contact Houze & Associates, Inc. at 800-523-7135 or [email protected]
