More details about coronary calcium scansA coronary calcium scan, also known as a heart scan or coronary calcium scoring, is an X-ray test of the heart that shows plaque containing calcium in the arteries. This test can help doctors diagnose coronary artery disease before symptoms are apparent.

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