  • 0

Sarasota, FL (WWSB) -- When it comes to paying for extra medical costs (things that your insurance may not cover) a flexible spending account, or FSA, plan might be an option. 

If you've signed up for an FSA plan at work (and money is in that account) there is a deadline that you need to know. March 15th marks the end of the FSA grace period by many employers - meaning if you don't use the money, you might lose the money. 

So - what things can you spend your FSA plan money on? Certain medical and dental expenses that aren't covered by your insurance. Do some homework before you attempt to use that money.
