Are eyeglass frames covered by HSA/FSA?

- Eye examinations
- Reading glasses
- Prescription sunglasses
- Prescription contacts
Why use HSA/FSA for eyewear?
Many health insurance plans allocate funds to a healthcare spending account, either a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA). As we near the end of the year, many of us with these accounts have funds remaining that may not carry over into next year. These accounts are meant for you to use flexibly to support your health, and prescription eyewear counts as an eligible expense.
What should I look for when using my FSA/HSA spending on eyewear?
Be sure to select prescription eyewear. Both prescription glasses and sunglasses are eligible expenses.
Consider styles of frames you like fashionably and the best lenses to suit your vision. It’s always a great idea to have your vision checked before purchasing new prescription eyewear so that you have the right Rx details and feel fully satisfied with your new eyewear.
