Using Your Health Insurance to Pay for An Air Purifier
This week, we take a look at how you can use your health insurance, FSA (Flexible Savings Account), or HSA (Health Savings Account) to cover the cost of your Austin Air purifier.
What Is An FSA
An FSA or Flexible Spending Account is used to cover the cost of certain ‘out of pocket’ healthcare costs, such as an Austin Air purifier.
Money is withdrawn from your paycheck and deposited into your FSA before your taxes are calculated. Alongside this, your employer may also make FSA payments, although they are not obliged to. Your company’s HR department will be able to provide you with more information on their company policy.
FSA money is then used to pay for eligible medical expenses that are not covered by your healthcare plan.
What Is An HSA?
An HSA (Health Savings Account) is similar to an FSA and will allow you to put money aside to cover the cost of healthcare expenses that are not covered by your existing healthcare plan. The main difference between an FSA and an HSA is that the individual controls an HSA, whereas FSA’s are owned by the employer.
Can I Use My FSA Or HSA To Pay for An Air Purifier?
If you are using your air purifier to treat a medical condition such as asthma, allergies, or COPD, your FSA or HSA funds can be used to cover the cost.
