Event Calendar / Who Said Cafeteria Flex Plans were Easy?
Details & Time Frame
Who Said Cafeteria Flex Plans were Easy?
This presentation will review the basics of Cafeteria plans; explain the change of status rules and nondiscrimination tests that each Cafeteria Plan must annually pass; show how Cafeteria Plans can integrate with HSAs; explain the various definitions of a "dependent" and how these definitions apply differently to health plans, Cafeteria plans, and HSAs; and explain how COBRA applies to Medical Flexible Spending Accounts.

Cafeteria plans provide tremendous tax savings to employers and employees. These amazing plans are the only employee benefit plan whereby the employer can actually make money through their FICA tax savings! However, in exchange for the marvelous tax benefits these plans provide, Congress requires that these plans comply with many specific rules.

While describing the basic structure and requirements of Cafeteria plans, this presentation takes you much deeper into the subject. We will examine how these plans can integrate with an HSA. We will study how and when COBRA applies to the Cafeteria Medical Flexible Spending Account.

Last, we will review the various "dependent" definitions. There are actually four different definitions that apply separately to health plans, HSAs, and dependent care plans. In other words, an "eligible dependent" on your company's health plan may not be an "eligible dependent" in an HSA.

It can be confusing. Join me, Nathan Carlson, President and owner of and a professional with over 25 years of experience as I explain these important rules in understandable terms. Although this is the first time that I have presented on, I conduct about 30 continuing education seminars each year to the HR and brokerage community.
