Are vitamins and supplements eligible under the Health FSA?
Amounts expended for vitamins, nutritional and herbal supplements, and natural medicines will be reimbursable only if the substance is prescribed by a physician to treat a specific medical condition. A doctor’s certification is required and must state the supplement by name and the medical condition for which it is intended to treat. Your doctor may provide you with certification on letterhead from their office, or you may provide this Letter of Medical Necessity form for your doctor to complete. This note is valid for one year from the date written. Before making an election based on this expense, please contact us to ensure the eligibility of your particular situation.
