More details about ankle bracesAn ankle brace is worn around the ankle to protect it or to immobilize so it can heal from sprains or other minor injuries. They're generally not used for broken bones, but they may be used for small fractures.
Please note that it's always best to check with your HSA administrator or health insurance provider to confirm if you can pay for ankle braces 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.
