HRA funds are mandated by the IRS to be used for health care expenditures only. Approved health care expenditures include those expenses defined by your employer that comply with Section 213(d) Medical Expenses as defined in the IRS code. These expenses may include deductibles, coinsurance, copayments, prescription drugs, vision care and dental care. Your employer may limit what expenses your plan reimburses; please consult with your Human Resources office for more information or call Customer Service.
For a list of IRS approved health care expenditures, please refer to Qualified Medical Expenses. Please keep in mind that your employer might have additional limitations.
Examples of expenses that are not eligible for reimbursement include gym memberships, nutritional supplements, cosmetic procedures and surgeries. Please refer to Qualified Medical Expenses to find a general list of non-eligible expenses, excerpted from IRS Publication 502.
