FSAs, HRAs, and/or HSAs

One possible way to mitigate your purchase costs is the use of Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs), and/or Health Savings Account (HSAs) funds to purchase Dr. Tennant® nutraceuticals. We are near the end of the year, and you may be eligible to use your Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs), and/or Health Savings Account (HSAs) funds to purchase Dr. Tennant® supplements.

It is our understanding that The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act of 2020) repealed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirement that over-the-counter drugs and medicines had to be prescribed in order to be reimbursable through FSAs, HRAs and HSAs. (If you have a limited-purpose flexible spending account (LPFSA) or a dependent care flexible spending account (DCFSA), supplement reimbursement is NOT eligible).

It is also our understanding that doctors may prescribe a specific dietary supplement(s) to treat a medical condition. If you are taking nutritional supplements for general health purposes, those still CANNOT be paid for from your HSA. But, if your healthcare provider recommends you take a supplement or protocol of supplements to treat or prevent a specific health condition, it would be considered an eligible expense.

The healthcare practitioner does not have to be an M.D. They can be a chiropractor or holistic practitioner of any type. It would be best to keep a copy of their recommendation/prescription in writing in case of an audit.

We recommend you consult with the appropriate professional if you have any questions along these lines, including your FSA/HRA/HSA administrator. Some plans’ funds roll-over, while others do not. Tennant Products focuses on the manufacturing and distribution of nutraceuticals as developed and inspired by Dr. Tennant and biochemists; we leave all medical (and legal, and financial) advice to others. 

If you decide to use your FSA/HRA/HSA to purchase your nutraceuticals, just use your [FSA/HRA/HSA] debit card as you would a Visa card, and our payment processor treats the charge just like it does a standard credit card.
