- UVA will not increase the Dependent Care Account (DCA FSA) maximum for 2021 as permitted by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The maximum will remain at $5,000 and $2,500 for married taxpayers filing separately.
To help UVA employees maximize their money for medical, pharmacy, dental, vision, and dependent-care expenses, the University has two options: Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Dependent Daycare Reimbursement Accounts.
- The Health Care FSA can be used to pay medical, pharmacy, dental and vision expenses
- The Dependent Care Account FSA can be used to pay dependent care expenses
FSAs make it possible for you to pay for certain expenses on a pre-tax basis.
All Health Plan participants may have some form of an FSA, but Basic Health participants may only have a Limited FSA for eligible dental and vision expenses.
UVA FSAs, including Dependent Daycare Reimbursement Accounts, are managed by Chard Snyder. Any reimbursements you receive from Chard Snyder must be deposited directly into your personal checking or savings account.
