Legislation seeks to repeal FSA OTC Prescription Requirement

The over-the-counter prescription requirement for Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) is on the chopping block. Bipartisan legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate asks to repeal the 2011 requirement introduced by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA).

This is not the first repeal effort of the OTC prescription provision. Under the current provision enforced since 2011, over-the-counter medications require a prescription to be reimbursed with an FSA . Advil, Tylenol and Zyrtec are a few examples of drugs that require a prescription for an FSA. In response, FSAstore.com introduced an Rx Process to help FSA holders submit their prescriptions for FSA reimbursement. Learn more about
