FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TRANSCEND BENEFIT PLAN
The Transcend Benefit Plan is an innovative program designed to allow employees to benefit from tax savings and restructure their health insurance benefits to reduce or even eliminate their out-of-pocket expenses. The Plan provides allowances for deductibles, co-insurance, co-pays, dependent care and other out-of-pocket expenses. By allowing higher contributions than typical FSA and HSA plans, The Plan provides greater savings.

All this can all be accomplished without negatively affecting your net take home pay.
