FSAstore.com reminds consumers – It may not be too late to use your 2011 Flexible Spending Account funds
NEW YORK, March 13, 2012 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - FSAstore.com, the only e-commerce site stocked exclusively with Flexible Spending Account (FSA) eligible products and services, is reminding the 30 million Americans covered by an FSA that they may have a grace period to use 2011 funds. March 15th is the 2011 grace period deadline. FSA holders can confirm their deadline and grace period eligibility with their FSA administrator.
In addition to thousands of eligible products from band-aids to vitamins and healthcare services from chiropractic care to smoking cessation, there are many ways to use FSA dollars before the March 15th deadline including:
- Over-the-Counter Products: Refill your medicine cabinet with over-the-counter products that are FSA eligible ranging from contact lens solution to blood pressure monitors. Note that FSA eligible items containing medicine require a doctor’s prescription to be eligible for reimbursement.
- First Aid Supplies: Restock your first aid kit. First aid kits, bandages, band-aids, adhesives, and athletic bandages can all be purchased with FSA money without a doctor’s prescription.
- Eye Care: Eyeglasses, contact lenses, and contact lens care products are FSA eligible without a prescription, so if you need vision aids, now may be the time to buy them. Buy a new pair of glasses or stock up on contact lens solution, eye lubricants, and cases.
- Sunscreen: Sunscreen is one of the latest products to become FSA eligible so stock up on some now for the upcoming summer months.
“We are encouraging our valued customers with grace period deadlines to use their 2011 funds,” said Jeremy Miller, FSAstore.com founder and president. “In addition to thousands of FSA eligible and FSA eligible with a prescription products, FSA holders will benefit from FSAstore.com’s tools and services such as our eligibility checker which helps people to learn about products that are FSA eligible.”
