Can you pay for lodging for medical care with an HSA?
Are you wondering if you can pay for lodging for medical care with a health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement arrangement (HRA)? You may also be wondering if this item is eligible or ineligible for reimbursement with your HSA, FSA, or HRA.
You may be able to use your HSA, FSA, or HRA to pay for lodging for medical care, but only if you have a letter of medical necessity or if your plan specifically allows it.
