More than a dozen amendments were filed this week by members of the Senate Finance Committee to protect flexible spending accounts (FSAs). Although a redrafted version of Chairman Max Baucus’ “America’s Healthy Future Act of 2009″ includes a raised cap of $2,500 on annual tax-free contributions to FSAs – initially proposed last week at $2,000 – advocates for the benefit say the “unreasonably low” cap appears to be “discriminating against FSAs which, unlike other provisions in the bill, is not indexed over time.”
