FSA submission documents

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have just discovered, after having Celiac for almost 10 years and an FSA for just as long, that I can submit documentation and get reimbursed for the difference in price between a non-gluten-free product and the gluten-free version.  This must be an infrequently used option as their call center staff had a tough time even explaining to me what documentation was needed.  My FSA provider has been notoriously difficult to work with when processing claims so I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this and may be able to provide insight and advice.  Thanks!

We considered it for a few minutes.......until we read though the IRS requirements and all the supporting documentation needed.  ?. We are self-employed and managing our business is enough paperwork and tracking for us.  In the end, we found that we consume mostly non-processed naturally gluten-free foods (meat, fruit, veggies).  Getting subsidized for junk food (bread, cookies, muffins and crackers)  just was not worth the time, effort, or the impact on our health.  

Here is some information about it:

I would suggest try finding people who have tracked gluten-free expenses and successfully passed an IRS audit.
