Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRA)The City of Hollywood contributes funds annually to eligible employees' HRA accounts.

Funds are normally available on January 1 and expire on December 31 of the same calendar year. Unused amounts will not be carried forward.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)Eligible employees can also participate in the City's 125 Flexible Spending Plan, a way to set aside a portion of pre-taxed dollars to pay for qualifying out-of-pocket medical expenses or dependent care. These funds are elected during Open Enrollment or upon hire; they expire December 31, and are subject to a "use it or lose it" basis.
The maximum annual benefit amount that an employee may currently elect to receive in the form of reimbursements for the Dependent Care Reimbursement Expense Plan is $5,000. The maximum annual combined total City and employee contribution amount for the Unreimbursed Medical Expense Plan is $2,850 (i.e. for unreimbursed medical, prescription, and dental co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance).
