It’s mid-January. At this point you’re either well on your way to sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions – eating healthy, exercising more, quitting smoking, and saving money…and the list goes on – or maybe your regular routine is already in good shape. Either way, health plays a large role in our lives and it’s no surprise then that New Year’s Resolutions tend to be health-oriented.
So where does a flexible spending account (FSA) fit in with resolutions?
Quitting Smoking. If your New Year’s resolution is to quit smoking, your flexible spending account will be able to help. Smoking cessation programs are FSA eligible and you can find FSA eligible smoking deterrent products to stall the habit.
Having an active lifestyle. Many people associate the New Year with a chance to lose weight or exercise. While weight-loss programs are not FSA eligible (unless necessary to treat a medical condition), maintaining good health is key to living a full life. Easily monitor your blood pressure or heart rate, protect your skin while having fun in the sun, or treat your muscle strains in your quest to be the healthiest “you!”
Preparing for emergencies. No one likes to imagine doomsday scenarios (though we survived the “end” of the world), but having a first aid kit handy in emergencies doesn’t hurt. Check out more first aid items here to be ready for anything.
Keeping your baby healthy & expanding your family. If you’re expecting or already have a little one, you know how important it is to stay on top of your baby’s happiness. FSA Store carries breast pumps that can be carried with you on-the-go, a pediatric kit containing a nasal aspirator and digital thermometer, and many more baby care FSA eligible products.
And, last but not least…. Saving money. An FSA is tax-free and can save you up to 40% on every dollar on qualified medical expenses! Find out how FSAs work from the FSA Store online Learning Center.
