There’s a lot to cheer about when you have a health flexible spending account (FSA) and know about its many advantages.
Many Ways to Save
With a health FSA, you save money on expenses you’re already paying for, like doctors’ office visits, prescription drugs, and much more. Since there are hundreds of eligible expenses you can use your FSA dollars toward, see our Health FSA Expenses list for more information.
Swipe and Go
Your benefit card is the easiest, fastest, and most secure way to pay for your eligible health FSA expenses. Use your card to purchase an eligible health FSA expense, and funds are automatically deducted from your health FSA account.
Many card purchases are automatically approved. However, sometimes you will need to submit additional documentation so be sure to keep all health FSA expense receipts for your card purchases.
If you happen to have a transaction that requires action, take care of it using our handy MyCONEXIS app on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod® touch. Just download the app by searching for "MyCONEXIS" in the App StoreSM and then take a photo of your supporting documentation. Or if you prefer, clear the unresolved transaction by uploading your supporting documentation and submitting it from your online account.
Track FSA Activity
View your FSA information anytime day or night by simply logging in to your online account. Get detailed account activity and read important notices. See lists of eligible expenses, review answers to frequently asked questions, and find useful tools and other resources. Keeping tabs on your FSA has never been easier.

If you’re sneezing more than ever these days, you’re not alone. More than 40 million Americans suffer from nasal symptoms of seasonal allergies. And depending on where you live or your environment, the allergy season can span all year.
According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), pollen and mold are the chief culprits of seasonal allergies. Although you can’t avoid every pollen particle or mold spore in the air, you can lessen your exposure with these simple suggestions:
Keep windows closed at home and in the car, and use air conditioning if needed.
Stay indoors when pollen or mold counts are high, or wear a pollen mask when outside. For up-to-date pollen counts in your area, see AAAAI’s National Allergy Bureau. You can even sign up for email alerts or download a smartphone app that tracks these counts.
Avoid touching your eyes or nose, and be sure to wash your hands, hair, and clothing after being outdoors.
Don’t hang clothing or linens outside to dry.
Wash bedding and stuffed animals in hot water weekly, and vacuum and dust inside your home often.
Your health FSA funds can be used toward doctor’s visits, tests, and treatments. And, if prescribed, you can also use your funds for over-the-counter allergy medicines such as Actifed, Benadryl, or Claritin. Learn moreā€¦
