More details about acid reflux medicationAcid reflux medications are used to treat heartburn or GERD. Other common names are pyrosis, cardialgia and acid indigestion.
You can get a prescription from your doctor for many of these medications, but a handful of highly effective ones such as Prilosec or Nexium are now over the counter and thus easily available for purchase with your HSA.
Please note that it's always best to check with your HSA administrator or health insurance provider to confirm if you can pay for acid reflux medication with your HSA card before making any purchases.
A good rule of thumb is that if your doctor diagnosed you with a specific medical condition or ordered a treatment, product, or prescription specifically for you, your HSA should cover it. Sometimes your HSA will even cover items that it normally wouldn't if you have a letter of medical necessity signed by your doctor. Again, you should check with your HSA administrator before any purchase if you have any questions about an item being eligible or ineligible.
