Sexual Dysfunction: FSA Eligibility

Sexual Dysfunction: eligible with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

When recommended for treatment of a medical condition, costs associated with various treatments of sexual dysfunction are eligible with either a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) or a prescription from a medical professional with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA) or a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA). Sexual dysfunction treatment reimbursement is not eligible with a limited care flexible spending account (LCFSA) or a dependent care flexible spending account (DCFSA).

What is sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction is the medical term for any persistent problems with sexual response, desire, orgasm, or pain that could lead to issues and strain over the course of a couple's relationship. Sexual dysfunction takes a number of different forms between men and women, and these issues can be the result of an underlying medical condition or a complex mix of the body's physiology, emotions, experiences and beliefs that can contribute to issues that only occur during sexual situations (Healthline).

Treatments for sexual dysfunction are largely tied to whether or not these issues are a result of a physical or psychological problem. For instance, there are a multitude of treatments for erectile dysfunction and it is considered a legitimate medical condition that can be treated after a visit to a physician, but issues such as low sexual desire or work-related stress/anxiety leading to poor performance are better treated through sexual counseling with a psychologist/therapist.

Some of the most common forms of sexual dysfunction that can affect both men and women include physical and medical conditions that can interfere with normal sexual function, including diabetes, heart disease, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, alcoholism/drug abuse, medication side effects and psychological issues such as anxiety, marital or relationship issues, depression, and past sexual trauma (Cleveland Clinic). Gender-specific sexual issues (pain during intercourse, ejaculation disorders, etc.) are typically best handled by physicians, but they also may be important subjects to discuss during sexual counseling.
