What are over-the-counter items?

A 2012 study commissioned by the Consumer Healthcare Products Association found that the use of OTC medicine would save the U.S. healthcare system $102 billion per year, as much of the savings comes from the utilization of low-cost medicines as opposed to drugs that must be filled by a pharmacist. OTC items such as medications, bandages, first aid, diagnostic products and more are eligible with a consumer directed healthcare account.
