If you had a Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (a.k.a. “Flexible Spending Account” or “FSA”) for the 2015 plan year, there is a grace period that extends into 2016 for your 2015 expenses if you still have a remaining account balance. You can use your 2015 FSA for services rendered between Jan. 1, 2015 and the extended grace period deadline of March 15, 2016.
You must submit claims to Your Spending Account (YSA) no later than June 15, 2016, and the funds will not be available to use for claims with service dates after March 15, 2016.
