Frequently Asked Questions

What is is everything flex spending with zero guesswork. It’s both the largest online marketplace for guaranteed FSA eligible products and an educational resource that you can actually understand.

What does "FSA eligible" mean?

FSA eligible means that in most cases a product or service will be covered by your flexible spending account. We work with the latest in industry standards to make sure the products we carry on our site are FSA eligible. If you use an active FSA card, your purchase will be auto-substantiated and you can skip the claims process! Note that not all FSAs are created equal; always check with your FSA administrator about plan allowances and requirements before you shop.

Are all of your products FSA eligible?

Everything on the site is guaranteed FSA eligible or your money back…for the most part. There are certain flexible spending accounts that don’t cover every item and some may be limited to only specific items and/or services. You should always check with your employer and/or FSA administrator to find out exactly what your FSA will cover. Other than those rare FSA accounts, everything we carry is FSA eligible.

Can I still shop if I don't have an FSA account?

Anyone can shop here. We accept all major credit cards and all FSA debit cards.

What if I have an FSA without an FSA card?

If you don’t have an FSA card, you can still shop on our site with a regular credit or debit card. Just print out a receipt and submit a claim to your FSA administrator so you can be reimbursed for your eligible purchase.

Do I have to submit receipts for my purchases at

If you do not have an FSA debit card you can print out a receipt and submit it to your FSA administrator to get reimbursed as you would normally with FSA purchases. You can print receipts after you make your order, or come back any time to access your account.

Please note: although we accept FSA debit cards, your FSA administrator might require a receipt for your purchase to substantiate the claim.

Do you accept insurance?

Most OTC (over-the-counter) products aren’t covered by insurance so there’s no need for insurance plans to process claims for your purchases. For home health products like wheelchairs that might be covered, we recommend you consult your insurance plan first, as we’re unable to process or apply insurance.

What is a flexible spending account (FSA)?

A flexible spending account (FSA) is an employer offered benefit, which lets you set aside tax-free money so you can save on qualified health purchases including OTC products, prescriptions, vision health essentials, and much more. FSAs are employer-sponsored and are owned by your employer, so you’re only eligible to participate if your employer offers the option. Some FSA eligible items include KT Tape, sunscreen, and copays. The IRS decides which items are eligible under FSA plans in general but your employer may choose to limit exactly what your FSA may be used on. Account holders can either use an FSA card for their purchase or use their own debit card and submit receipts with a claim to their administrator for reimbursement.

How do I know which items are FSA eligible?

Everything on our site is guaranteed FSA eligible!

Note: Although the IRS sets guidelines for FSA programs, individual employers have the final determination of which expenses are covered by their FSA programs. However, it is rare for employers to make such changes. We are a member of SIGIS which sets the eligible product list. The FSA icon displayed on our site does not guarantee you will be reimbursed. Check with your employer for the specific guidelines of your program.

Will my order be subject to sales tax?

For orders subject to sales tax:

We’re required by law to collect sales tax on orders shipping to addresses in these states: Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota,Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Washington DC, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. The tax applied to your order will be the combined state and local rate for the zip code to which your order is delivered.

For self-reporting state sales and use tax:

We don’t collect sales tax on orders shipping outside of the above mentioned states. However, just because we don’t collect and aren’t required to collect sales tax in other states doesn’t necessarily exempt you from paying a sales or use tax in your state. A purchase is not exempt merely because it was made online or other remote methods. In particular, the states of Colorado, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Vermont require the reporting and payment of use tax for out of state untaxed purchases.

Where can I find my store credit?

If you have earned store credit for an order you have placed as a guest, you will be able to access your earned credits once you have created an account.

How can I use my store credit?

Store credit can be combined with other promotional codes or coupons. Store credit cannot be used toward an order from our Optical Store, or on contacts or glasses.

What is Stockpiling?

FSAs are subject to the requirement that eligible expenses be incurred and received within the plan year. “Stockpiling” is an industry term that generally refers to purchasing more of a product than one will reasonably incur or use within the FSA plan year. Consistent with our commitment to education, FSA Store provides warnings around what may be considered stockpiling. This is intended to let you know that should your FSA administrator review the purchase, they may require you to provide documentation to justify that the quantity of items purchased will be used within the remaining months of your FSA plan year.
