Health expense accounts could face cuts
The healthcare bill proposed by the Senate Finance Committee would pare tax-free health expense accounts. The legislation would limit flexible spending account contributions to $2,000 a year beginning in 2013, and it would standardize the expenses that are qualified. Some health plan administrators are distressed that Congress may scale back such accounts, and administrators have started a campaign to preserve the flexibility in the plans.
