Today, we're answering "Should I use my health savings account/flex spending account for physical therapy in Kansas City?"

Have you been struggling to find relief from pain? Don’t put off a physical therapy visit any longer. 

The end of the year is a busy time at F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic. That’s because many patients discover that they have met their health insurance deductible and are now eligible for paid-for or discounted medical services.

But what about non-traditional insurance plans such as HSA/FSA?

Sometimes, it’s up to employers to determine which expenses are covered under their HSA. 

When it comes to physical therapy, however, IRS Publication 502 considers this a valid medical expense covered under valid HSA/FSA plans when it is deemed medically necessary.

So how do you know if your employer or insurance company will consider your physical therapy medically necessary? It may be necessary to get a doctor referral. Other times, it’s simply a matter of paperwork.

In order to properly file your physical therapy visits under your HSA/FSA, F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic can provide you with any paperwork you need to submit any claims.

The best part about using your HSA/FSA for physical therapy is that, like other qualified medical expenses, these visits are tax deductible, which means you can actually save money on your care.
