More details about aspirin

Aspirin, also known as acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), is an oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to reduce pain, fever, or inflammation. It can also be taken to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots.

Because of the risk of Reye's syndrome in children, it's recommended that you consult a physician before giving aspirin to children or teenagers.


Please note that it's always best to check with your HSA administrator or health insurance provider to confirm if you can pay for aspirin 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.
