CCSD is making your healthy habits and well-being a top priority by providing the opportunity to participate in the Lifestyle Spending Account (LSA) managed by HealthEquity. Employees will have up to $1500 to be reimbursed for eligible Health & Wellness expenses starting from August 4, 2023 through December 8, 2023 & January 1, 2024 through May 24, 2024.
The LSA is an employer funded program. Employees please be aware that the money reimbursed is taxable income. Employees will see the employer paid reimbursement reported on the payroll stub in income but then deducted out with only applicable taxes withheld.
