Who Is Considered A Dependent For My Medical FSA?

You are permitted to use your medical FSA plan to pay for eligible healthcare expenses for you and your eligible dependents. In general an eligible dependent is:

  • Your Spouse
  • Your dependent that you can claim on your tax return
  • Your adult child(ren) who is under the age of 27.

A domestic partner is not considered a spouse under federal law, so a domestic partner's medical expenses cannot be reimbursed under your medical FSA account unless the domestic partner is a qualifying relative as described above. A qualifying spouse must be legally married.
