Flexible Spending Account Products for Back to School

It’s almost time for kids to pack their backpacks and head to school. Back-to-school time can be a little hectic. In the midst of shopping for clothes and school supplies it’s also important to consider kids’ health needs.

Make sure kids get enough rest and balanced nutrition to boost their immune systems. They should be getting healthy doses of fruit and vegetables and keeping hydrated throughout the day, while sports elevate energy levels and improve concentration.

A healthy diet combined with exercise are therefore a must, but your flexible spending account plays a role as well. With a flexible spending account (FSA), you can schedule a visit with a family doctor or pediatrician for a physical before school even starts. Many sports teams require that kids get a yearly physical. Schools often require that vaccinations are kept updated, so be sure to check in with a medical provider and use the FSA towards these. Your FSA covers copays, deductibles and co-insurance. Search FSAstore.com’s FSA Eligible Services section for a doctor near you.

As far as flexible spending account products go, there are numerous items you can get to keep kids healthy.

Flexible Spending Account Products for Kids

  1. All kids have their favorite cartoons and carrying a tiny FSA eligible first aid kit with these colorful band-aids will make even minor accidents less scary.
  2. Bring a cold pack to sports games to provide relief for injuries and sprains.
  3. Get rid of colds fast with saline solution and nasal spray. In the wintertime, we’re prone to stay indoors more which increases spreading of colds and viruses. A personal steam inhaler or warm steam vaporizer can alleviate cold symptoms.
  4. Apply sunscreen before going out to sports games or on the playground. Sunscreen should be worn even on cloudy days to protect skin from damaging UV rays. Re-apply every two hours for maximum protection.
