Using Flexible Spending Accounts


Many patients have asked if they can use their flexible spending accounts for acupuncture, and many others regularly use them here. Based on the government’s FSA website, FSAs are special accounts into which you put money that you can then use for certain out-of-pocket health care costs for you, your spouse, and your dependents. 

Although acupuncture is on the list of covered medical expenses on this 2016 IRS Publication, you should check with your employer or health care plan to make sure that acupuncture is covered under your particular circumstances.
