If you have a medical flexible spending account (FSA) and have money left in your FSA account, you need to use that money before the end of the year, as your FSA dollars will expire on December 31st.
You do not need to spend your FSA dollars just on medical bills. You can stock up on health care items (i.e. Band-aids, Ibuprofen, Allergy Pills) and personal care items (i.e. Face Washes, Tampons, Sunscreen, Condoms). This is also the perfect time to order contact lenses or a new pair of cute eyeglasses (you’ll need to ask your eye doctor for a written prescription for these).
You can spend FSA dollars at any of the following online stores as all of these online stores accept FSA Funds for payments:
- AC Lens – Contact Lenses

You can actually stock up on FSA eligible health care and personal care items from anywhere (i.e. Walmart, Target), but you’ll need to pay for them yourself with cash or a debit/credit card and then to submit your receipts to your Flexible Spending Account to be reimbursed for your FSA approved items.
