Question by Evelyn: Why can’t I use my FSA card for over the counter purchases under new health care law?
The new health care law requires me to have a script from my doctor to purchase over the counter medication like aspirin or allergy medication. So I bother my doctor via a phone call or sometimes even pay for a visit just to get a script for something that can be bought over the counter. How is this a good use of my money that I have set aside in this account to cover my medical costs.
Answer by Jay
There was too much cheating. Blame the people who abused it.
The good news is that you can still buy with cash/check/credit card/debit card and submit your receipts. You don’t need to bother the doctor, although you do need to deal with submitting.
