Reimbursable and Unreimbursable Expenses

Eligible Health Care Expenses

Through the Health Care Spending Account, the IRS allows you to be reimbursed for most out-of-pocket medical, dental, vision, and hearing care expenses.  Expenses solely for cosmetic reasons generally are not expenses for medical care.  In addition, over-the-counter items are eligible for reimbursement.  These items include antacids, allergy medicine, pain relievers, cold medicine and more.  Any item that is purchased to maintain good health and not to treat or alleviate an illness or injury is not reimbursable.

The following list is not intended to be comprehensive, but is meant to be a guide only and is subject to change. The Internal Revenue Service outlines what expenses are allowable and disallowable.  In general, IRS Publication 502 (link opens in new window), Medical and Dental Expenses, has a more detailed list of the expenses that can be reimbursed under the Health Care Spending Account. You may also contact our offices with any specific questions.
