Needle Container: FSA Eligibility

Needle Container: eligible with a Flexible Savings Account (FSA)
A needle container is an eligible piece of medical equipment with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA) or a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA). Needle container reimbursement is not eligible with a limited-purpose flexible spending account (LPFSA) or a dependent care flexible spending account (DCFSA).

What is a needle container?

A needle container, also commonly referred to as a sharps container, is a special container approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that is designed to safely hold, transport and dispose of needles and other non-sterile sharp implements after they have been used. Because of the risk of injury and infection from coming into contact with these sharps, these containers are available for both at-home and portable use.

While non FDA-approved sharps containers are available for purchase, it's vital that consumer-directed account holders purchase needle containers that adhere to the FDA's strict guidelines regarding these devices. First, they should be constructed of heavy-duty plastic, contain a puncture-resistant lid to avoid sharps piercing the user when closing the box, leak-resistant and properly marked to ensure that anyone who handles the container will know that it contains hazardous material.
