Health Flexible Spending Account and Mileage Reimbursement

February 2019 

The Health Flexible Spending Account (FSA) lets you set aside money from your paycheck on a pretax basis to use for eligible out-of-pocket health expenses. The account can be used to pay for eligible medical, dental, vision, hearing, and prescription drug expenses for you, your spouse, and your eligible dependents. 

Did you know you can also be reimbursed from your health FSA for mileage for travel to and from your medical appointments, the hospital, or your local pharmacy? Recently, the IRS raised the travel reimbursement amount to $0.20 a mile for 2019. To ensure your transportation claim is approved, submit an itemization of your travel with the claim for the service(s) you received.
