FSA Eligibility

Rockwell Automation offers two Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs): the Health Care FSA and the Dependent Care FSA. FSAs help you pay for eligible health care and dependent care expenses with tax-free dollars. You’re eligible for different FSAs depending on the medical option you choose:

  • If you enroll in the Broad Access or High-Performance plan option you are eligible to participate in a Health Care FSA.

  • If you enroll in the HSA option, you are eligible to participate in a Limited Purpose FSA only. You can only use your Limited Purpose FSA for certain expenses, and you must submit claims for reimbursement. You cannot use the Smart-Choice debit card.

  • You do not need to be enrolled in a Rockwell medical plan to be eligible to participate in a Dependent Care FSA.

IRS Regulations for Flexible Spending Accounts

The IRS manages the guidelines for eligible FSA expenses. In most cases, you’ll need to submit receipts or other documentation to prove that your expenses are eligible. Make sure your documentation is complete and clearly eligible!

By law, expenses for domestic partners and their dependents are not eligible for reimbursement from FSAs.
