What are the benefits of an HSA?
Important HSA Rules
To be eligible for our HSA, you must be enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan through Arthur Chapman. In addition, in order to contribute, you must NOT:
If you are age 55 or older you may make an additional "catch-up" contribution of $1,000.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are voluntary accounts that allow you to set aside pre-tax money for certain health and dependent care expenses. These are separate accounts with separate purposes, and therefore the money in one account cannot be used to satisfy expenses in the other. As an Arthur Chapman employee, you can choose to participate in one or all of these accounts depending on your needs. The Flexible Spending plan is administered by Superior USA Benefits.
When you establish an FSA, you will be able to choose the annual amount you want to contribute to the account, up to certain plan limits. This amount is deducted from your paycheck in equal installments before Federal Security taxes are withheld. FSAs are a great way to save money, but keep in mind, they are "use it or lose it" provisions for each account, which means you will forfeit any balance that is left in your FSA at the end of the year.
You do not have to be enrolled in the Firm's medical, dental or vision plans to be eligible to participate in the FSA, however, if you are enrolled in the HRA medical plan through the Firm be sure to factor the employer-fund HRA dollars when estimating how much pre-tax dollars should be set aside.
Health Care Flexible Spending Account
Employees who are enrolled in the $1,500 deductible plan and not enrolled in a Health Savings Account (HSA) or High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) may participate in the Health Care Flexible Spending Account.
You can elect up to $2,850 in the Health Care Flexible Spending Account for 2022. You can use this money to pay for eligible medical, dental, and vision expenses you or your dependents incur during the plan year.
Limited Health Care Flexible Spending Account
The Limited Health Care Flexible Spending Account is for all employees who contribute, or have a spouse who is contributing to a Health Savings Account or High Deductible Health Plan (includes expenses for dental, orthodontic and vision care only).
You can elect up to $2,850 in the Limited Health Care Flexible Spending Account for 2022.
