Medical Reimbursement Account

Enrolling in a Medical Reimbursement Account is a great perk that delivers real money, allowing you to use pre-tax dollars to ease the financial burden of out-of-pocket healthcare expenses that come your way.

You decide how much to contribute and then enjoy immediate access and tax-free savings (on average 30% or more), using the funds as you see fit for planned or unplanned expenses.

The maximum annual contribution amount that can be made to a medical reimbursement account is $2,500.

The maximum annual contribution that can be made to a Dependent Care Reimbursement Account is $5,000.
