Core Documents Produces Video About Section 125 Health FSA Plans

December 17, 2013

What’s new with Health FSA plans in a post-ACA health insurance America?

Here’s an “Executive Summary” YouTube video about Section 125 Health FSA Plans.

A “Post-ACA Mandates” Section 125 Health FSA Plan means:

The Internal Revenue Service released Notice 2012-40 provides guidance on the application of the Affordable Care Act’s $2,500 limit on employee pre-tax contributions to health fsa’s. Effective for plan years after December 31, 2012 Health Care Reform (ACA, ObamaCare) limits Health FSA contributions to $2,500 per plan year for employee contributions. Employers may also contribute to a Health FSA (flex credits) in excess of the $2,500 annual limit.

A cafeteria plan offering a health FSA will need to be amended to comply with the $2,500 limit. If a cafeteria plan that includes a Health FSA is not timely amended, it fails to qualify as a cafeteria plan or Health FSA and all employee elections of nontaxable benefits under the plan (e.g., health FSA salary reductions and health plan premium payments) must be included as gross income to the employees.

New $500 Carryover of Unused Funds for Health FSA plans in 2014

And, effective in plan year 2014, employers that offer FSA programs will have the option of allowing participants to rollover, or carryover up to $500 of unused funds at the end of the plan year.

Effective immediately, employers that offer FSA programs that do not include a 2.5 month grace period will have the option of allowing employees to roll over up to $500 of unused funds at the end of the current 2013 plan year.
