Plan Your Expenses This Summer With FSAFEDS

With summer in full swing, now is a great time to make the most of your Flexible Spending Account Program (FSAFEDS) Flexible Spending Account (FSA) with eligible expenses related to the warmer months. Items such as sunscreen, prescription sunglasses and first aid kits are eligible with the Health Care FSA (HCFSA), and services such as summer day camp and daycare are eligible with the Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA). You may enroll in a DCFSA or change your DCFSA election if your child care provider needs change. For example, if summer day camp is cancelled or a return to work necessitates dependent care, you may enroll in a DCFSA or reduce your election amount.

It's Not Too Early to Prepare for Fall

Summer will quickly end, so now is the time to begin scheduling your children for their back-to-school appointments. Physical exams, vaccinations, dental and vision exams are all eligible HCFSA expenses. Do not forget these recent additions to help keep your family healthy:

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

You can use your HCFSA to purchase personal protective equipment, such as face masks and hand sanitizing wipes (with 60%+ alcohol base).

Over-the-Counter Medicines and Menstrual Care Products

You can also use your HCFSA to purchase most over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and drugs without a prescription, as well as menstrual care products. OTC medicines include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Aspirin, ibuprofen, and other pain relievers
  • Allergy and sinus medicine
  • Cough drops and throat lozenges
  • Eye drops
  • Nasal sprays
