Flexible Spending Program

County employees can elect to participate in a Flexible Spending Program administered by Discovery Benefits, Inc. This program allows employees to use pre-tax dollars to pay for certain health care and/or dependent care expenses. In addition, employees can choose to have their portion of the monthly Health Plan premium withheld from their checks on a pre-tax basis as well. Generally, employees who participate in the Flexible Spending Program have less taxes withheld from their payroll checks than if they had elected not to do so.
