If a member opts to waive coverage, both medical and prescription coverage must be waived.

Tax$ave Flexible Spending Accounts

Horizon is the flexible spending accounts administrator. A new enrollment is required every year in order to participate in a flexible spending account.  This means that current participants must enroll again.

Tax$ave offers eligible employees the opportunity to increase their available income by reducing their federal tax liability.  Employees who elect to participate in a flexible spending account (FSA) decide how much to contribute for the calendar year at enrollment.  Ideally, employees who elect to enroll in a flexible spending account base their contribution amount on predictable expenses.
