A Good Reason to Continue 2011 New Year's Resolutions of Wellness: Tax Benefits

Did you know that you may be able to put your gym membership and/or weight loss program through your Flexible Spending Account?  Doing this would save you tax dollars on the money you spend for your wellness efforts.  To do this, log in to your account at, go to the Document Library, and click on “Certification of Medical Necessity”.  You can type directly into the form, print it out, and send it to your doctor.  If your doctor is willing to complete and sign the form recommending the weight loss program or gym membership, you can submit it with your receipt to put the expense through your Flexible Spending Account. 

Feel free to contact the HR Office if you need further information.
