Overview

A Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a type of account, provided by your Bedford City School District, that allows you to put aside money to pay for eligible dental and vision care expenses. The money going into the account is tax-free (no payroll tax is withheld), saving you money on items and services you are already purchasing. Enrolling in a flexible spending account may save up to 40% on your healthcare costs. 

A Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account reimburses eligible expenses for you and your tax dependents. Eligible expenses include dental or vision care costs not covered by insurance.
