You may use your health care flexible spending account, or FSA, to be reimbursed for health care expenses for yourself and your family that are not paid through another source (such as your medical plan). However, expenses incurred by or for the treatment of a domestic partner or the child of a domestic partner cannot be reimbursed.
The federal government sets the requirements for determining which health care and dependent care (day care) expenses can be reimbursed from funds contributed to your FSA. The following are examples of eligible health care expenses:
Internal Revenue Service Publication 502, Medical and Dental Expenses provides examples of the types of expenses that are eligible for reimbursement through your FSA.
