Based on new government regulations that took effect on January 1, 2011, some of the items mentioned in this blog article will no longer be eligible FSA expenses. Please refer to our blog article... How Flexible Will Flexible Spending Accounts be in 2011?... for more details.
Do you offer your employees the ability to pay for medical and dependent care expenses with a flexible spending account or FSA? Then you no doubt get a lot of questions from them about what can be expensed.
So we created a booklet that outlines what items can be paid for with FSA money. This report also gives you examples of what items may be eligible depending on an employee's medical condition or circumstances.
This booklet lists over 100 health care and dependent care expenses that an FSA will pay for. These include things like:
- Allergy & sinus medicine
- Blood pressure monitor
- Chiropractic office visits or treatment
- Flu shots
- Lasik eye surgery
- Smoking cessation gum or patches
- And much more!
