A Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA) is a great tool for helping you manage your heath care budget.
With an HCRA, you have the ability to contribute pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible medical expenses
including prescriptions, doctor’s office copays, health insurance deductibles, coinsurance, some over-the-counter (OTC) medications,
and much more. As an added benefit, the the Flexible Employees’ Benefits Board provides a $50.00 credit to any member who
