Dry Eye Disease is a recognized affliction by the medical community. So, treatments for dry eye disease are included as qualifying medical expenses for FSA reimbursement, even though our EyeGiene System and Refills are “over the counter” items that do not require a prescription.
How Does the FSA Reimbursement Process Work?
For an FSA account, the money has accumulated pre-tax during the year, but needs to be spent before the end of the year. Any unspent money is lost (forfeited) rather than returned to you. So, you need to spend the money on medical supplies and services before the end of December.
There is a grace period for submitting your receipts for reimbursement. That typically runs 60 days into the next year, in this case 2021.
EyeGiene Insta-Warmth Masks and Refills are a Qualifying Medical Expense for FSA
Our Insta-Warmth compress System for the treatment of dry eye disease has been reviewed by the FDA and is an over-the-counter treatment developed by a US Board-Certified Ophthalmologist.
So, keep your receipts, and order your Fall and Winter EyeGiene System and Refills by December 31, 2020 to be able to claim reimbursement from the funds accumulated in your FSA in 2020.
Contact us with any questions about this. If you bought your EyeGiene System and Refills directly from us through our www.eyegiene.com website, we can help you find lost receipts to submit your claims. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wish you the best of health, and continued relief from any dry eye symptoms as we head into the Autumn season!
