Can you pay for acupressure with an HSA?
Are you wondering if you can pay for acupressure with an HSA? You may also be wondering if this item is eligible or ineligible for use with your HSA funds, or if it qualifies for reimbursement.
You may be able to use your HSA to pay for acupressure, but only if you have a letter of medical necessity.
More details about acupressureAcupressure is an alternative medicine technique similar to acupuncture. However, instead of sticking needles into your skin, acupressure practitioners apply pressure to specific areas of the body with their hands, elbows, or other devices.
Please note that it's always best to check with your HSA administrator or health insurance provider to confirm if you can pay for acupressure 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.
