One thing we all know to be true? Having a baby is expensive! And while your bundle of joy is worth every penny, it is helpful to know that mamas can get some extra help with essentials.
If you're enrolled in an FSA (Flexible Spending Account) or HSA (Health Savings Account), you are entitled to a ton of eligible expenses for tax-free purchase like prescriptions and health insurance deductibles. Beyond basic medical care, you can also use these accounts to purchase items like postpartum undies, pumps, probiotics and more, all untaxed. Yup, amazing.
What's not so amazing? Scrambling to use dollars that expire (unused FSA dollars risk being turned back over to employers if not spent before December 31) while also sweating the holidays, COVID restrictions and ever-changing rules. That said, you may be able to shop anywhere you want, depending on your policy, and send your receipts for reimbursement. Be sure to check your insurance policy to see which items qualify before making your purchases.
