Toiletries: FSA Eligibility

Toiletries: reimbursement is not eligible with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
Toiletries 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 toiletries?

Toiletries are articles used for washing, cleaning, and maintaining bodily hygiene. They are normally use in restrooms, bathrooms, showers and baths. Toiletries can describe anything from oral care items like mouthwash, toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss to hair products like shampoo and conditioners; bathroom products like toilet paper; fingernail clippers, and more.

Because these items are for personal use and not for the treatment or mitigation of a medical condition, they are not eligible for reimbursement with a consumer directed healthcare account.

Toiletries are usually Over-the-Counter (OTC) products sold nationwide in drug stories, grocery stores, corner stores, and department stores. They are considered universally useful and necessary, and part of regular living rather than for specific medical care. Toiletry kits are commonly sold as well, and may consist of the basic items like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. for use in travel or as a quick solution for emergencies or last minute situations.
