All eligible medical expenses can be claimed under your Health Spending Account and these expenses include many things most people expect like: prescription drugs, chiropractic, and dental. 

However, you might be overlooking expenses that qualify as eligible HSA expenses and could be saving you money!


Over the counter non-drug items like crutches, canes, walkers etc. are eligibile expenses under an HSA.  

Fertility Treatments

There is a significant financial burden for couple having trouble conceiving. A single round of in-vitro (IVF) treatment can cost as much as $10,000, including drugs needed to stimulate ovulation. 

Often, more than one try is necessary, so the bills can add up quickly. 

With an HSA, these treatments are eligible expenses.


Though many kids and adults require them, braces are still often not covered under many traditional health benefit plans. Braces can get expensive, so the ability to offset costs using your HSA can be a tremendous stress relief. 


Diabetic Supplies

  • test strips
  • monitors
  • and more...
are eligible expenses through your HSA.
