Only eligible expenses can be reimbursed through the HCFSA and/or the DCSA.

  • In the case of the HCFSA, eligible expenses are for medically necessary health care expenses not covered by your medical, dental or vision plan and incurred by you and/or your eligible dependents for federal income tax purposes.
  • In the case of the DCSA, eligible expenses are for necessary dependent care costs you pay for your eligible dependents while you work. If you are married, your spouse must be gainfully employed, disabled or a full-time student for these dependent care expenses to be reimbursable. This account is for dependent day care expenses only and not for dependent health care expenses.

Expenses must be incurred during your period of coverage to be considered eligible. For purposes of the HCFSA and DCSA, your period of coverage is the plan year or, if you began participating in coverage mid-plan year or ended it early due to a qualifying status change, the shorter period during which you had elected coverage.
