I do not see the deductions made to my FSA listed on my W2

I pay $2500 to a healthcare FSA.  I use all the expenses contributed.  I can see my Dependent Care FSA deduction listed on my W2, but don't see the medical.  Can I then claim under the health-related expenses paid section?

No, you cannot claim the contributions to a healthcare flexible spending account (FSA) as a medical expense.

The funds taken from your paycheck and deposited into your medical FSA are pre-tax funds.  Since it is funded with money that has not been taxed, you cannot take a deduction for the contributions.  The medical FSA amount is not required to be reported anywhere on your tax return and therefore it is not required to be shown on your W-2.  You also should not report any medical expenses on your tax return that were paid or reimbursed with funds from the medical FSA.
