Summer Season and Your HSA or FSA Funds

Summer season is here, are you ready for it? The season means sunshine, backyard BBQs, and time spent outdoors, but it also means risk for sunburns, scrapes and bruises, and those annoying allergy symptoms. Your health savings account (HSA) and flexible spending account (FSA) funds can be used to prepare you for the summer season!

Skin Care

Warm weather brings more people outdoors exposing them to the sun and bugs. Protect and care for your skin by purchasing eligible skin care items from the HSA or FSA eligible list. Some products that can be purchased are:

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunburn gels and lotions
  • Anti-itch creams
  • Lip balm

First Aid

As you spend more time enjoying outdoor activities, be prepared for injures that can happen in the forms of scrapes, bruises, and cuts. HSA or FSA funds can be used to purchase full first aid kits or to re-stock your current kits. First aid eligible items.

Allergies

You might think allergies are only for the spring and fall, but allergies can strike during any season. Don’t be caught off guard and unprepared by a summer cold, use your HSA or FSA funds to stock up on eligible allergy relief items such as:

  • Nasal sprays
  • Sinus rinses
  • Eye drops
  • Indoor/Outdoor allergy relief medicines

Be prepared this summer! Eligible item list for HSA or FSA.
