Regarding #8232, my Flexible Spending Account is what I use to pay for unreimbursed expenses like drug co-payments and dentist's bills. There's some limit, I forget what it is. Anyhow, I was cruising along at $3 deduction a week, until I broke a tooth in November. I had to dash down to our HR department to increase my deduction for 1999 to pay for that. The HR lady was sort of upset, I hadn't done it in their standard enrolment period and it took her all of 25 seconds to make the change.

JABoa,

Does this mean you waited until 1999 to have the tooth repaired? I would think if it was repaired in November 1998, the bill would go towards 1998 deductions.
