An FSA sets aside tax free dollars from every paycheck for health care expenses including prescriptions, co-pays, breastfeeding supplies and several items you can purchase at the drugstore.
This is similar to an FSA or HSA, but is solely dedicated to pay for dependent care. Be sure to check with your benefits provider to be certain that your childcare is eligible for this benefit before you elect.
If not, ask for one to be provided for you. If you plan on nursing you will want to set yourself up for success. Your company is required to provide you with a private room to pump that is not a bathroom stall.
