IRS Guidelines

The information on this website describes Aetna spending accounts in general terms. Features of these plans may vary based on the specific terms established by your employer.

  • Health Care FSA plans are governed by the rules of Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code and will be administered in accordance with those rules.

Estimate fund amounts carefully. Unused Health Care FSA funds and Dependent Care FSA funds will be forfeited either after the last day of the plan year or two months and 15 days into the following fund year, depending on your plan design.

Eligible expenses may vary from employer to employer. In case of a conflict between your plan documents and the information in this website, the plan documents will govern. Please refer to your employer's Summary Plan Description for more information about your covered benefits.
