So you’ve got some money in an FSA/HSA account – but now what? Can you use it to get any Everlywell at-home lab tests or online telemedicine offerings? How does an FSA/HSA even work? Let’s break it down.

What Is An FSA/HSA?

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is an employee benefit that allows you to set aside pre-taxed money for certain health care expenses. [1] A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an investment account that is available to people who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). [1] The HSA is funded by the HDHP and can also be funded with pre-tax contributions. These funds can be used to pay for insurance deductibles as well as other healthcare costs.

The short and sweet summary: Whether you open an FSA or HSA, you’re basically opening a savings account – that comes with tax benefits – to use specifically for healthcare expenses. This includes expenses that are part of your health insurance plan, like deductibles and copays, but you can also use the funds to cover qualified medical expenses. [1] In some cases, you can use a physical card to purchase qualified items, such as medications at a pharmacy. There is also the option to get reimbursed for qualified expenses, which involves sending a receipt to your benefits coordinator. [1]

What Are “Qualified Medical Expenses”?

According to the IRS’s Publication 502: “Medical expenses are the costs of diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, and the costs for treatments affecting any part or function of the body.” [2] There are quite a few products that are considered eligible for purchase or reimbursement with FSA or HSA, including [2-3]:

  • Some over-the-counter medications, like acetaminophen, allergy medicines, and antacids.
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Fertility treatments
  • First aid cream
  • Vaccinations
  • Doctor’s visits
  • Contact lenses
  • Sleep aids
  • Maternity support belts
  • Medicated hand cream, lip treatments, face wash

And much more. Keep in mind that your specific provider and plan may have certain stipulations. You should always speak directly to your benefits coordinator to determine if a product or service is covered.

It’s always a good idea to check with your FSA/HSA benefits coordinator before making a purchase that you expect to be paid back for. A good practice is to give your benefits coordinator as much information as possible about the product or service before purchasing.

Are Everlywell Telehealth Visits Qualified Medical Expenses?

Generally speaking, the answer is “yes.” Telehealth services, like Everlywell virtual care visits, are considered eligible for reimbursement with FSA/HSA according to the FSA store. [3] There are certain factors to keep in mind that can influence when and if a certain telehealth visit is covered- like your plan deductible. It’s always best to check with your benefits coordinator to make sure a product or service is covered before purchasing.
