What expenses are eligible for reimbursement from my HCFSA?

Many of your out-of-pocket health care expenses may be reimbursed by a HCFSA if those expenses are not covered by your FEHB or FEDVIP plans. Typical expenses include:

  • Chiropractic services
  • Co-insurance, co-pay amounts and deductibles
  • Contact lenses and cleaning solutions
  • Dental care and procedures not covered under a FEDVIP plan (including crowns, endodontic services, implants, oral surgery, periodontal services and sealants)
  • Eye surgery not covered under a FEDVIP plan (cataract, LASIK, corneal rings, radial keratotomy, etc.)
  • Eyeglasses not covered under a FEDVIP plan (including prescription sunglasses and over-the-counter reading glasses)
  • Hearing aids and batteries
  • Infertility treatments
  • Orthodontia not covered under a FEDVIP plan
  • Over-the-counter (OTC) items (including sunscreen, bandages and hearing aid batteries)
  • Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and drugs (including antacids, allergy medicines, cold medicines and pain relievers).

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.

Please note: Insurance premiums, including health insurance, life insurance, long-term care insurance and Temporary Continuation of Coverage, are not eligible for reimbursement.
