How to Get Incontinence Products with an FSA or HSA Account

One of the challenges of incontinence isn’t the condition, but the cost. Incontinence supplies can be expensive, ranging from $900 – $4,000 annually. But if you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), that cost can be greatly reduced.

It turns out that both the FSA and the HSA can be used to pay for incontinence products. Even if your insurance plan doesn’t offer coverage of incontinence products, you could still potentially use your FSA or your HSA. But in order to use these accounts to pay for incontinence products, you need to know a few things first.

Getting incontinence products with an FSA or HSA account

Incontinence Products with an FSA Account

Generally speaking, incontinence supplies are eligible for reimbursement with a Flexible Spending Account. One of the advantages of an FSA is that it covers medical needs that are often not covered by private insurance. For many FSA plans, this includes incontinence supplies. Refer to your FSA plan details to find out your coverage level.

If you use an FSA to pay for incontinence supplies, make sure you keep your receipts. You may need to demonstrate that the funds were used for a medical need.

A Health Savings Account may also be used to pay for incontinence products. The important thing to keep in mind with an HSA account is that you may need to demonstrate a medical need for your incontinence products. HSA funds must go towards expenses for items that are medically necessary.

The best way to provide this proof is to get an incontinence diagnosis from a physician or doctor. With a doctor’s confirmation of your condition, it will be much easier to demonstrate that your items are medically necessary.

Like an FSA, it’s also important to keep any receipts from purchases you make with an HSA. It’s very possible that you will be asked to show proof that the expenses are related to a medical need.
