Disclaimer

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