Nitrile Gloves: FSA Eligibility

Nitrile Gloves: reimbursement is not eligible with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
Nitrile gloves are not eligible for reimbursement with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA), health reimbursement arrangement (HRA), limited-purpose flexible spending account (LPFSA) or a dependent care flexible spending account (DCFSA).

What are nitrile gloves?

Nitrile gloves are made out of synthetic rubber, and are an ideal alternative when latex allergies are of concern. Nitrile is quickly becoming the material of choice for single-use gloves. The main reason is because unlike latex, which is a natural rubber, nitrile is synthetic and does not cause allergic reactions.

There are 3 million people (1 percent) in the United States that have allergies to natural rubber latex. However, this percent grows among those who have regular exposure to latex products, like disposable latex gloves.

Nitrile gloves are the superior glove when it comes to puncture resistance. Before gloves can be marketed to hospitals and medical institutions, they must undergo a series of tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure their durability.
