Can you pay for bicycles with an HSA?
Are you wondering if you can pay for bicycles 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 bicycles, but only if you have a letter of medical necessity.
More details about bicyclesA bicycle doesn't really need an explanation, but just in case you've been living under a rock, a bicycle is a human-powered vehicle on two wheels. While some are motorized, most people know bicycles as something you sit on and pedal to move the wheels.
Please note that it's always best to check with your HSA administrator or health insurance provider to confirm if you can pay for bicycles 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.
