We all know the end of the year brings about holiday gifts, celebrations with family, and traveling far and wide. Those with HSA (Health Savings Account) and FSA (Flexible Spending Account) accounts tend to have one additional thing on their mind. How to spend their remaining money before it disappears, or how to use it when a large sum has accumulated. After scouring the internet, I realized the answer was really difficult to figure out. Sure, someone could buy bandaids, pre-pay their prenatal/delivery bill, or go get a new pair of glasses, but what about therapeutic services?
I went on a quest to find out the accurate answer and got a multitude of responses. Those who have the accounts, made me aware that they used them for club memberships/packages and had never been audited. That was interesting, but didn't mean it eventually wouldn't happen either! After locating a few resources in the insurance & accounting industries, I think I've finally figured it out!
Meet Danielle Harris! Danielle is a staff accountant at Radwan Brown & Company, PSC in Lexington, KY. After asking colleagues and doing ample research, the following came to light. HSA and FSA money must be used for qualifying medical expenses. As such, if a medical care provider orders a therapeutic service for the patient, it should be a qualified expense. This would include massage and massage packages! This is great news for Baby Moon families who have these accounts, and would like to use their funds on massage therapy. So what are the next steps if you want to use your money at Baby Moon?
Contact your insurance agent and ask if doctor ordered therapeutic massage is covered on your plan. If the answer is yes, contact your doctors office and request a doctors order for therapeutic massage as needed. Next, contact our office by phone, text, or email to let us know you'd like to pre-purchase a massage or a massage package. Our card readers are fully equipped to accept HSA/ FSA cards. You'll receive a receipt via e-mail to attach to your doctors note for audit purposes and voila, you've taken care of your therapeutic massage needs and used your FSA/HSA funds!
Remember, Baby Moon massage therapists service the entire family. You do not need to be pregnant to have a massage with our amazing therapists.
