Eligible OTC Expenses

This list has been compiled for the convenience of our clients and participants and is designed to provide a general overview. Readers are cautioned to review their own employer-sponsored benefit plan descriptions and enrollment material for specific information or to consult with their employer or personal tax advisor as necessary. This information is subject to change at any time and without notice.


* The products listed here are examples, and do NOT constitute an endorsement or an exhaustive listing of reimbursable OTC products

IMPORTANT:

Starting January 1, 2011, over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and drugs will require a written prescription (Rx) from your doctor in order to get reimbursed. In addition, OTC drugs or medicines cannot be purchased with a healthcare card such as the PayFlex Card™. Please keep this new federal requirement in mind when using your healthcare account for expenses incurred on or after January 1, 2011.

Notice: The items included in this listing will require a prescription unless otherwise noted. The items identified as "no Rx required" are eligible items that can continue to be reimbursed without a prescription since they are not drugs and medicines. These items can also continue to be purchased with a healthcare card, such as a PayFlex Card.
