Sunburns and bug bites and splinters, oh my! Take steps to ensure you have a safe fun summer by using your WageWorks® Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for a wide-variety of items that you, your spouse or your dependents may need for your vacation, beach, or other outdoor plans.
Your Healthcare FSA can help you:
- Protect your skin: Load up on sunscreen for the summer months. Check out products that are FSA-eligible and available for purchase at the FSA Store, including sunscreen with SPF 15+ with insect repellent to keep those pesky mosquitoes at bay.
- Feel good on land (and sea): Do you have what you need to enjoy your time away from home? Your FSA can be used to purchase many travel essentials, such as ear plugs, orthopedic neck support pillows and acupressure wrist bands to help with motion and seasickness.
- Smell the roses: Don’t let pollen or nagging allergies slow you down. There are dozens of over-the-counter products that are FSA-eligible that may help with allergy relief, including saline nasal sprays, nasal rinse, steam inhalers and nebulizer kits—a prescription is needed.
- Play the role of doctor: In the event of an injury, make sure you’re prepared. Restock your first aid supplies for summer—band-aids, tape, gauze and re-usable cold packs are all eligible FSA expenses.
Wondering what else might be covered with your FSA? Take a look at the comprehensive list here or by logging into your WageWorks account. Happy summer!
