What is an eligible flexible spending account (FSA) expense?

An eligible expense is any healthcare or dependent daycare expense approved by the IRS for reimbursement through the plan. These eligible expenses are often the same expenses allowed for income tax return deductions. However, expenses reimbursed through a Flexible Spending Account cannot be itemized and resubmitted through an income tax return and you may not use your prepaid benefits card or be reimbursed for expenses that occurred before the beginning of the Flexible Spending Account plan year. Eligible expenses include items and services incurred by the employee, their spouse and any eligible dependents. You may not use your Flexible Spending Account for pre-payment of services. Click the links to view eligible expenses for each type of Flexible Spending Account:

You may access the complete and up-to-date list of eligible items in the EBIA Healthcare Expenses Table by logging in to your account and looking under the Resources tab.
