Health FSA Limit Will Increase for 2017

By November 2, 2016 December 6th, 2017 Employee Benefits, Legislative Alert

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) imposes a dollar limit on employees’ salary reduction contributions to health flexible spending accounts (FSAs) offered under cafeteria plans. This dollar limit is indexed for cost-of-living adjustments and may be increased each year.

New Limits Announced

For the 2017 plan year, the health FSA dollar limit will increase to $2,600 from $2,550 in 2016. Employers may continue to impose their own limit, provided it does not exceed the limit set forth by the ACA.
