Most Popular Questions

What kind of over-the-counter medicines or products are eligible for reimbursement through my HCFSA?

All over-the-counter (OTC) medicines or drugs (including insulin) are eligible for reimbursement through a HCFSA. OTC products that are not medicines or drugs (such as sunscreen, bandages or contact lens solution), and are purchased to alleviate or treat a medical condition are also eligible items for reimbursement. Vitamins and other dietary supplements that are merely beneficial to the general health of an individual remain ineligible for reimbursement.

Please refer to the HCFSA Eligible Expenses for more detailed information about specific OTC items.

In accordance with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) that was signed on March 27, 2020, over-the-counter (OTC) medicines or drugs (e.g., acne treatments, allergy and cold medicines, antacids, etc.) are eligible for reimbursement from your Health Care FSA without a physician's prescription as of January 1, 2020. Any over-the-counter (OTC) medicines or drugs purchased prior to January 1, 2020 are only eligible for reimbursement with a physician's prescription. Any items used for general health or cosmetic purpose ARE NOT eligible.
