Flex has been providing best-in-class group cafeteria plans since 1988. Unlike other service providers, group cafeteria health plan administration is at the core of our Flex Plans offerings. Our Flex125 group cafeteria plan administration services allow employers to bundle pre-tax benefit options, including:

  • FSAs - Health Care – Allows participants to plan ahead and set aside tax-free dollars for unreimbursed health care expenses, as defined by IRS Code Section 213(d).
  • FSAs - Dependent Care – Participants can pay for child or elder care expenses with tax-free dollars using a Dependent Care FSA. These expenses must be incurred while the employee is working or a full-time student, and must be for the care of a Section 125 tax dependent. Participants are reimbursed with tax-free dollars from their account after submitting a reimbursement form, along with other required information.
  • Non-Discrimination Testing – This annual testing ensures compliance with the IRS regulations of an employer’s Cafeteria Plan, Flexible Spending Account and/or Dependent Care
    Spending Accounts.
  • Premium Only Plans (POPs) – With this plan, the participant can pay for their portion of the group health insurance expenses on a tax-free basis. As health care expenses change, employee’s elections can also be adjusted.
