2016 End of Year Product Guide to FSA Eligible Products

The holiday season is almost here, and with that in mind, we've compiled our 2016 End of Year FSA Product Guide. It seems like there's no shortage of time to tackle your holiday shopping list, decorate and send out greetings to family and friends. With all those responsibilities in store, it can be easy to forget the flexible spending account (FSA) deadline, which for many account holders comes on December 31st. This is the time of year when the "use-it-or-lose-it" rule takes effect and any unspent FSA funds will be forfeited. Even if you have the FSA rollover or "grace period" in place, this is still the time of year to speak with your benefits administrator and submit claims and check your remaining balance.

What is the 2016 End of Year FSA Product Guide?

The December 31 deadline is the busiest time of year for us at FSAstore.com.Each year we try to educate consumers on the scope of products available with FSAs. This guide can help you identify what you need to spend down your FSA and maximize the potential of your healthcare benefits. If you like the guide, share with others who have an FSA.

Here's our product guide for your FSA:
