  • Vitamins for general health are not an eligible Medical FSA expense (a general purpose vitamin, for example).

    If you have a medical condition and a doctor prescribes a specific supplement or combination of supplements to treat the medical condition then the supplement(s) are eligible if you get the doctor to complete a letter of medical necessity (completing all sections of the form).

    A doctor wouldn't be able to prescribe you take a general multivitamin to maintain good health.
