The reimbursement rate for travel related to medical care for participants in the Federal Flexible Spending Account Program will continue to be 22 cents a mile in 2023.

The FSAFEDS rate was increased to 22 cents last year on July 1. From Jan. 1-June 30, 2022, the rate was 18 cents a mile.

The deadline to file FSA claims for 2022 is April 30.

Postal Service employees can use a downloadable mileage worksheet to keep track of travel and parking expenses related to medical care. For reimbursement, employees must sign the bottom of the worksheet and submit it along with a completed Health Care FSA claim form.

More information about FSAs, including a list of eligible health care expenses and savings calculators, is available at or by calling 877-372-3337.
