More details about allergy testingAllergy tests are a way for medical professionals to diagnose and treat allergies to food, pollen, mites, animals, and insects.
Allergy tests may be done by drawing blood and looking for certain antibodies, or by a skin-prick test, in which the skin is pricked with needles that contain allergens and then observing the skin for redness or swelling.
Please note that it's always best to check with your HSA administrator or health insurance provider to confirm if you can pay for allergy testing 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.
