Can you pay for blood tests with an HSA?

Yes, you can pay for blood tests with an HSA.

More details about blood tests

A blood test is any blood test or lab work done in a laboratory and typically ordered by a medical doctor.

Common blood tests include complete blood counts (CBC), comprehensive metabolic panels, lipid panels, liver panels, and hemoglobin A1C.

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 blood tests 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.
