Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)
An FSA (not to be confused with an HSA) can be used for medical expenses, dental care and vision care depending on which medical plan you are enrolled in. The amount you decide to contribute up to the IRS limits to the account for the year is deducted from your salary before income taxes. This reduces your taxable income, saving you money on taxes. When choosing an amount to contribute, keep in mind that FSAs are a “use it or lose it” account. Any unused funds at the end of the year will be forfeited.
Assurant offers three FSAs:
- The Health Care FSA (for Blue health plan participants): Use to pay for eligible out-of-pocket medical, prescription, dental and vision expenses.
- The Limited Purpose FSA (for Green or Orange health plan participants): Use to pay for qualified out-of-pocket dental and vision expenses ONLY.
- The Dependent Day Care FSA: Use to cover your cost of elder care or child care for children up to age 13.

Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and likely when you least expect them. They can be costly and lead to extra expenses. Many people aren’t financially prepared to handle extra costs, such as plan deductibles, co-pays for emergency room care, testing, supplies and out-of-network care. Having this financial support may mean less worry for you and your family. Payments are paid directly to you, not to the hospitals or to other healthcare providers. You receive a check made payable to you. Accident Insurance may help you to focus more on your recovery and less on your finances.

Critical Illness Insurance
Critical illnesses can happen when you least expect them — and they can be costly. Even good medical plans can leave you with big expenses. Plan deductibles, co-pays and costs for out-of-network care can add up fast. Critical Illness Insurance may help protect your finances by providing you with one lump-sum payment (when there is a verified diagnosis of a covered condition).
The cash can help you focus on getting back on track. Best of all, the payment is made directly to you, and is paid regardless of any other insurance you may have. It’s yours to spend however you need, including for your or your family’s everyday living expenses.
