FSADo you have a flexible spending account (FSA), or health savings account (HSA) with your health insurance plan? If you do, you are likely not reaping the most benefit from it. Many people don’t even realize what all they can use their FSA to pay for. One way to save money in 2017 is to make the most of your FSA, and never pay out of pocket unnecessarily again.

FSA Eligible Items

Exams: routine medical, dental, vision, hearing, x-rays, blood work, diabetes, visit co-pays

Treatments: acupuncture, chiropractic, fertility, therapy, smoking cessation

Monitors: blood pressure, glucose, breast pumps, fertility, body scans

Classes: breastfeeding, childbirth
