In March, 2020, President Trump signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) into law. The law, which has a retroactive start date of January 1, 2020, allows healthcare FSA, HSA, and HRA funds to be used for over-the-counter drugs and medicines and includes menstrual care products as eligible items.
Once merchants have updated their lists of eligible products, you should be able to use your MyAmeriflex Debit Mastercard to purchase over-the-counter items without issue. This may take several weeks or months, however, and your patience is needed until the updates have been completed.
To review a few list of eligible expenses, log in to MyAmeriflex and visit the “Resources” tab.
To purchase FSA-eligible items online, visit the FSA Store.
