Are your summer essentials FSA/HSA Eligible?

Are your summer essentials FSA/HSA Eligible?

June 28, 2023

Summer is the time to dive into all the BBQs, beach days, pool parties, and late night get togethers on the patio. 

While the summer brings all this fun in the sun and extra time outside, you might find yourself needing to purchase some “summer essentials”. 
These essential items include:

  • bandaids
  • sunscreen
  • prescription sunglasses
  • allergy medications
  • anti itch cream
  • aspirin
  • etc. 

Keep in mind some of these items are reimbursable under your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA).
This is a great time to use extra funds you may have in your account or hold onto receipts so that you can submit for reimbursement later in the year.

Covered and reimbursable items are regulated by the IRS.  Be sure to check their website for more information on what is considered a qualified expense and what is not.
