mask and hand sanitizerThe IRS has announced that purchases of personal protective equipment (PPE) qualify for reimbursement under a health flexible spending account (FSA), health reimbursement arrangement (HRA), or health savings account (HSA).
Eligible PPE products now include paper and cloth masks, hand sanitizer and sanitizing cleaning supplies. This is in addition to other products and services associated with COVID-19 symptoms, such as at-home coronavirus tests, thermometers, heating pads, and co-pays for doctors’ visits.
PPE products are readily available to buy from the FSA Store and HSA Store. Remember, when you use your MedBen debit card at the FSA Store, you don’t need to substantiate your purchase!
