I have an Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)-based health insurance plan through my job.
At the start of every calendar year, my company contributes $1,600 to my HRA account.
These funds can be used for any medical expenses not covered by insurance. This includes co-pays, coinsurance, and "other medical expenses".
It's the "other medical expenses" that I am inquiring about. There seems to be very little information on what this comprises.
6 months ago I attempted to buy some vitamins with my HRA card, and it was rejected. More recently, I used it for acupuncture and a massage, and the HRA card was accepted. If the card was accepted by the merchant, can I make the assumption that the expense is permissible?
