Prepare for Spring With These Eligible Expenses
March 20, 2019
Allergy symptoms can strike at any time! Spring, in particular, is synonymous with allergies, since that’s when plants in many parts of the country start to break free from winter’s frigid grasp.
Your Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) funds are eligible to be used on many popular springtime expenses, including your allergy-related purchases. We’ve compiled a few common eligible expenses you may need during spring.
Warmer weather is a welcome sight, but it comes with a catch for the millions of Americans diagnosed with sinusitis each year. Symptoms of sinusitis include postnasal drainage, congestion and pain around your eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead. You can seek relief and save money by using your HSA or FSA funds to purchase eligible expenses that will ease your symptoms, including:
- Nasal sprays
- Sinus rinses
- Eye drops
Are over-the-counter medicines just not enough to help with your allergy-related symptoms? Fortunately there are skin and blood tests available to help you determine the cause(s) of your symptoms. And allergy testing is an eligible expense for your HSA or FSA funds.
You can ditch your sweatshirts and those “cabin fever” feelings as the weather improves. But with more outdoor activity comes an increased risk for cuts, bumps and bruises. Stock up your first-aid kit with a number of items that are eligible for HSA and FSA funds, including bandages and gauze.
