Health Care FSA

A health care flexible spending account is a great way to help you save money pre-tax for annual healthcare expenses you may foresee.

If you know you’re going to have medical, prescription drug (and some OTC medication), dental and vision expenses, you can pay for them with a Health Care FSA (HCFSA) and avoid paying federal income tax on the expense.

For employee's not enrolled in Aetna's Savings Advantage medical plan, McClatchy offers an HCFSA.

Plan Information

How can you lower your taxable income this year with your FSA?

Contributions to your FSAs are tax-deductible, and the funds are tax-free when used for qualified expenses. For example, if you contribute $2,000 annually to your FSA and your base salary is $60,000- you will only be taxed on $58,000 of gross income (note, this example is only considering the FSA component of taxes).
