Qualified Medical Expenses Under a Health Savings Account (HSA), a Health Flexible Savings Account (FSA) or a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA)

HSAs, Health FSAs and HRAs may only reimburse services or treatments that qualify as “medical care” as defined by Internal Revenue Code Section 213(d). Generally, medical care means expenses incurred to diagnose, cure, treat, mitigate or prevent a disease, or for the purpose of affecting any structure or function of the body. This list is not exhaustive, please reference your employer’s plan description for more information regarding expenses that are eligible for reimbursement by your account. Also, you may wish to consult your tax advisor to determine whether an expense is a reimbursable medical expense.

Common expenses that are generally considered qualified health care expenses:

Qualified medical expenses that require a prescription:

Expenses for items that are merely beneficial to the general health are not expenses for medical care. Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines or drugs can be reimbursed only if prescribed by a doctor. In addition, each account is subject to additional rules that may prohibit reimbursement of an otherwise qualifying medical expense. This list is not exhaustive.

Dependent care FSA-eligible expenses include:

* Considered an eligible expense with a Limited Purpose FSA (LPFSA).

** Please refer to your employer’s plan description to confirm the qualified expense list available to you. Certain expenses may be subject to stricter scrutiny by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In this case, you may have to provide the IRS with substantiation or documentation from a physician that the service or treatment was necessary to treat a specific medical condition and/or that the expense would not have been incurred but for the medical condition.
