Notice: The U.S. Department of Treasury and IRS issued a notice on October 31, 2013 revising the "Use It or Lose It" rule for Health Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs).  This modification will now permit employers to choose to allow up to $500 of unused amounts remaining at the end of a plan year in a Health Care FSA to be paid or reimbursed to plan participants for qualified medical expenses incurred during the following plan year, provided that the plan does not also incorporate the grace period rule.

The State of Michigan currently offers a grace period and will continue to do so for the 2014 & 2015 plan years.  Civil Service Commission will evaluate this revised ruling and determine how future plan years will be administered.
