10 Most Surprising FSA-Eligible Purchases


When it comes to healthcare, we all want a similar experience. We want affordable products and services with tools that are easy to navigate. With a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), it can be all of that!

FSAs allow you to choose an annual amount to contribute from your pay based on the amount you expect to spend on health care expenses not reimbursed by insurance. Also, because FSAs are funded by pre-tax paycheck deductions, you have the potential to build more savings!

While the savings and tax benefits of FSAs are substantial, what does that mean for your everyday living? Let’s explore just how powerful an FSA can be.

Where Can You Use Your FSA funds?

With your Clarity FSA, you enjoy the added perk of a Clarity Benefit Card. The card works just like a regular debit card where you can shop for the items you need easily in-person or online.

Some common ways to use your FSA include traditional in-store purchases at qualified retailers and doctors’ offices. FSA eligible purchases can be used for everything from co-pays and eye exams to prescriptions and over-the-counter medical supplies.

Like the convenience of shopping online? The FSA store is a perfect option! FSA stores online have the largest selection of guaranteed FSA-eligible products and it's so easy to use. It’s just like shopping on Amazon–simply put the items in your cart that you need and the FSA eligible store will tell you if they qualify. This helps take the guesswork out of making your healthcare purchases and FSA shopping.

Now that we’ve covered some of the basic ways to use your FSA, you may be wondering–what are some unique items that qualify for FSA purchases and coverage?
