Take Control of Your Health Spending

UPMC Flex Advantage offers several convenient pre-tax benefit plans. You receive a card that gives you easy access to the funds in your consumer benefit accounts. Depending on the benefit accounts offered by your employer, your card may be linked to a:

  • Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
  • Dependent Care Account (DCA)
  • Transit/Parking Account
  • Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA)
  • Health Savings Account (HSA)

If you’re not sure which type of account you have, check with your employer.

*Tax savings examples are based on the numbers that you enter. Payroll and income tax laws vary from state to state. Savings may be more or less depending on your individual tax bracket, state income tax rates and the accuracy of the information that you supplied. For more information, please consult a tax professional. Payroll and income tax are based on Pennsylvania information.

How your card works

Your card gives you instant access to your UPMC Flex Advantage accounts. It’s preloaded with the funds you specified when you enrolled. This way, you can pay for qualified health care expenses wherever MasterCard® is accepted — from physician and dental offices to local pharmacies and optical shops. Approved expenses are automatically deducted from your available balance. No matter what type of card you have, there are some things to keep in mind. Most important, it can only be used to pay for eligible expenses, including:

  • Doctors’ office visits
  • Prescription drugs
  • Vision and dental expenses
