Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and products are reimbursable under a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Limited
Expense Care Flexible Spending Account (LEX FSA) (dental and vision expenses only), and Health Reimbursement
Account (HRA) when the OTC product is used for medical purposes. Below is a description of the three IRS-defined
categories, followed by product examples for each.
Eligible OTC Medical Care Expenses
Eligible items include medicines or products that alleviate or treat injuries or illness for you and your dependents. These drugs and products are not cosmetic in nature, or merely beneficial to your general health. Claims for OTC medicines and products must include an adequate receipt that states the name of the medicine or product, the date, and the amount paid. If your supermarket or pharmacy receipt does not include this information, you will need to copy the label from the product or its packaging, circle the correct amount on your receipt, and submit this information with your signed claim form. You do not need to provide a statement from a medical provider or indicate a diagnosis in order to receive reimbursement. 2. Dual-Purpose Products
Certain OTC products are considered dual-purpose, such as vitamins and supplements. That’s because for some
individuals, the product is used to alleviate a medical condition, while others use the product for general health and well-
being. These products may be eligible for reimbursement, but require a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) stating your
specific diagnosis or medical condition, a recommendation to take the specific OTC medicine to treat your
condition, and documentation of the product and cost. Polycomp can provide you information regarding the LMN
to assist you in submitting this information.

Excluded Items
OTC products that are not medicines or that merely benefit your general health are NOT reimbursable, such as vitamins without a LMN. Reimbursement for OTC medicines still follows the existing rules regarding your plan. The expense(s) must: 9 The OTC drug is for you, your spouse or your dependent. 9 The expense is incurred during the plan year. 9 Submit a detailed store receipt which includes the name of the product. If the receipt does not show the product name, you must also include a copy of the product label or container cover. 9 The reimbursement does not include unreasonable stockpiling.
