Optum Bank - Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

Save money for health care and dependent care expenses while reducing taxable income.

  • Health care expenses: Use your health care FSA to pay for qualified medical expenses as well as some over the counter medical supplies.
  • Dependent care expenses: If you have children under age 13 or adult dependents who aren’t capable of caring for themselves, you can use your dependent care FSA to pay for eligible daycare expenses.
  • FSAs do have a “use it or lose it” rule, so be sure to estimate contributions carefully.
