Under the federal government's recently passed CARES Act, a number of common over-the-counter products were permanently added as eligible expenses for the health care flexible spending account, or FSA.
More important, these over-the-counter medications are now covered without the need for a prescription from your doctor. Watch this video to learn more about the changes.
Tylenol, first aid, sunscreen, antihistamines … you can easily spend your health care FSA dollars on a variety of items. Review a full list of eligible expenses here.
Use your debit card at the pharmacy or other store to purchase these products, and remember to save your receipt or take a picture of it for substantiation.
