Are Foot Supports And Arch Supports Like Dr. Scholl’s Inserts FSA Eligible?

It's an activity that's often taken for granted: walking. Yet, walking is the most prevalent form of physical activity in the U.S. Most of us are on our feet every day whether by walking a short distance at home, going around our neighborhood, going to a park, shopping for groceries, or commuting to the office. It's no surprise that because we're on our feet so much that arch pain and tired feet can put a real damper on anyone's day.

Americans need a lot of physical activity (it's recommended that adults get 2 and ½ hours of aerobic physical activity a week), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Not only does regular exercise keep people at a healthy weight, but it also fights the risk for diabetes, depression, and heart disease.

Foot care with your FSA

If your feet hurt often, you may be wondering: are foot and arch supports FSA eligible? Luckily, Dr. Scholl's inserts and foot supports qualify for a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) reimbursement. Check out our Eligibility List to discover FSA eligible expenses (both products and services) for foot care. You can also always check in with your FSA administrator if you have questions about your FSA account.

Treat arch pain with insoles

Arch pain can commonly occur when people have what are known as “flat feet." Flat feet occur when foot arches collapse to almost entirely hitting the ground. Studies show that flat feet can be treated in kids by going barefoot whenever possible (even better is going barefoot on a beach, if you live near one). For adults, it's been shown that shoe insoles/inserts can help. Wearing orthotics can help elevate the arch in a way that adds support and could potentially reduce pain. In addition to wearing proper shoes and limiting how often you wear heels (sorry, ladies), insoles can provide the proper support to your arches.
