How to Get Reimbursed for Ava with Your HSA/FSA
If you have an HSA or an FSA, you may be able to get reimbursed for the cost of Ava. Here’s everything you need to know:
What’s an HSA/FSA?
A health savings account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged medical savings account available to taxpayers in the United States who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan. The funds contributed to the account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit.
A flexible spending account (FSA) is similar, but with an HSA funds roll over an accumulate year to year if they are not spent. With an FSA, this is not the case.
In some cases, you deposit pre-tax income into your HSA or FSA. In this case, anything you purchase through your HSA/FSA will be effectively at a discount, because you are using pre-tax income. In other cases, your employer may contribute funds into your HSA or FSA account.
Is Ava Covered By Your HSA or FSA?
In many cases, HSA/FSA plans cover fertility monitors. You will need to check the details of your individual plan to see what is covered.
Can I use my HSA or FSA card to purchase Ava?
If you have a debit card associated with your HSA or FSA account, you may be able to use it to purchase Ava. If that doesn’t work, you can purchase Ava using your regular credit card, and request a reimbursement from your HSA/FSA account.
If I can’t use my HSA/FSA card to purchase Ava, how do I get reimbursed?
Different HSA/FSA plans have different requirements about what kind of documentation is needed in order to be eligible for a reimbursement. In most cases, a copy of your order confirmation email will suffice. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an itemized receipt for your Ava. Rarely, your HSA/FSA plan may require a doctor’s note.
