5 FSA-eligible expenses for winter
Need to spend down your Flexible Spending Account?
The holidays are almost here. To enjoy this “most wonderful time of the year," it's also good to keep close tabs on your health. After all, no one wants to be sniffling and sneezing through a holiday dinner or experiencing any pain associated with colder weather.
FSA eligible expenses
Here's our short list of 5 FSA eligible expenses to keep you healthy this winter!
- Need a back adjustment? According to the American Chiropractic Association, half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms annually. Chiropractors qualify as FSA eligible health care providers. You can shop for Hot and Cold Packs with your FSA at FSAstore.com to alleviate all types of pain.
- Wondering about your vision? When was the last time you had an eye exam? The American Optometric notes an eye exam is an important part of overall preventive health care. Use our FSA Eligible Services to find a local ophthalmologist, or shop for FSA eligible eye care at FSAstore.com. Glasses and contact lens care are FSA eligible as well.
- Battling a cold or the flu? Cold and flu medicines are FSA eligible. Because many of these items contain medicine, you will need a prescription to get FSA reimbursement. FSAstore.com has an Rx process through which you can submit prescriptions. Please note this process will be shutting down soon to ensure delivery of all items before year-end. If you're looking for quick relief from a stuffy nose, personal steam vaporizers and saline solution qualify for your FSA without a prescription. You can shop for these FSA eligible products at FSAstore.com.
- Protect your face in the colder temperatures with sunscreen. Did you know it's good to apply sunscreen to your face every day? Sunscreen with an SPF 15 is FSA eligible, and sun safety applies even when it's cloudy. Learn more in our blog post about baby sunscreen safety.
- Prevent foot pain. As you're busy shopping, running, or on your feet with wintry sports, your feet can start to feel sore. Protect your feet and provide long-lasting support with orthotics for your feet, heels and arches. Arch and insole supports, blister and corn treatments, and callous removers are FSA eligible (shop for these at FSAstore.com).
