HSA Qualified Expenses
What expenses can be paid by an HSA?
Your HSA covers a wide variety of medical expenses. These medical expenses must be necessary for the treatment or alleviation of a
specific illness or injury. They may include hospital or clinic services, prescription drugs and medications, certain over-the-counter drugs,
and many other health related expenses as defined by Section 213(d) of the Internal Revenue Code. Medical expenses covered under the
HSA can include expenses that are not covered under the high deductible health plan such as chiropractic, dental, orthodontia, or vision
expenses. For more information about eligible expenses, please consult Publication 502 available at your local IRS office or from the IRS
website: www.irs.qov.
Your HSA can also be used to pay premiums for COBRA, Medicare, long-term care insurance (federal limits apply), and health plan
coverage you may have while receiving unemployment compensation.
