FSA/HSA Eligible and Non-Eligible Expenses
There are many ways to use your tax-advantaged benefit accounts to save money on both healthcare expenses and taxes.
In addition to this document listing the most common eligible and non-eligible expenses, below are some shopping resources that specialize in medical products that are eligible expenses for FSAs and HSAs.
Over-the-Counter (OTC) Medications
OTC medications require a doctor’s prescription to be eligible for FSA/HSA reimbursement. For that reason, they cannot be purchased using your benefits debit card unless dispensed by a pharmacy in the same way as a standard prescription (with an Rx number). If you submit a claim for reimbursement involving an OTC medication, you'll need to submit both a copy of the prescription and the purchase receipt to receive reimbursement.
Non-medicated OTC products (diabetes test strips, saline solution, bandaids, etc.) do not require a prescription. You can
use your debit card to purchase these items or submit the purchase receipt for reimbursement.
