Flexible spending plans essentially allow an employee to set aside a specific percentage of their pay-check to be put into a healthcare expense account. The plan helps employees offset unforeseen medical expenses that they may incur throughout the year. At the moment, an employee can withdraw money from their flexible spending account to pay for over-the-counter drugs. The key component of these plans is that the money that is set aside is not subject to income, social security or Medicare taxes. Register now at https://stockcall.com/development/stockcall/page.php?name=register.html to have free access to our reports on the drug related products industry.

When the law kicks-in in January, employees will no longer be able to withdraw money from these accounts to pay for over-the-counter drugs. There are concerns that consumers will spend less because the money they personally set aside will be subject to taxes and therefore less than they would be able to spend with flexible spending accounts. Drug manufacturers are hopeful that consumers will regard the difference as negligible and maintain their spending habits.

Lobbying efforts are underway to reverse the reform law's position on flexible spending accounts but as it stands, it will go into effect at the beginning of the New Year. It is not yet known how much the legislative change will affect short-term revenues.
