HSA/FSA Eligibility Updates:

As a reminder, the CARES act expanded the list of products that are eligible for reimbursement for both Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs).  Some items now considered eligible for reimbursement include the following:

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) Medicines for treatment of allergy symptoms, flu and cold, asthma
  • Pain relievers and anti-inflammatories
  • Denture products
  • Nicotine cessation products (patches, gum, lozenges)
  • Orthopedic wraps
  • Feminine care products
  • Certain skin ointments

Believe it or not, Amazon has created a very user friendly section where they have grouped all the HSA/FSA eligible products together.  If your debit card is declined due to the systems not recognizing the reimbursement yet, you will need keep your receipts to file manually for reimbursement.
