The North Shore-LIJ Lenox Hill Hospital open enrollment period for the 2013 flexible spending account
The FSA is an account where you contribute money from your salary before taxes are withheld and then get reimbursed for your out-of-pocket health care and dependent care expenses. You save money by paying less taxes. This is an easy way to save money on the services and products that you are already spending money on. However, please note that if your medical/dependent care claims add up to less than the amount you elect, you forfeit the difference of the money deducted at the end of 2013.
