Are Prescription Safety Glasses FSA Eligible?


Prescription safety glasses are essential for many professionals who work in environments that pose risks to their eyes. From construction and manufacturing to healthcare and laboratory work, the need for clear vision and eye protection cannot be overstated. One common question at RX Safety is whether these crucial protective eyewear items are eligible for reimbursement through the Flexible Spending Account (FSA). The good news is, yes, prescription safety glasses are typically FSA-eligible! This blog will explore how you can use your FSA to purchase prescription safety glasses and introduce our partnership with Binkey to streamline the process.

What is an FSA?

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a special account you put money into that you use to pay for certain out-of-pocket health care costs. The money you contribute to an FSA is not subject to payroll taxes, making FSAs a great way to save money on medical expenses. FSAs cover a wide range of healthcare-related costs, including prescription medications, medical devices, and, importantly, prescription eyewear.

Are Prescription Safety Glasses FSA Eligible?

Yes, prescription safety glasses are generally eligible for reimbursement through an FSA. Because these glasses are considered a necessary medical expense for those who require vision correction and work in hazardous environments, they qualify under most FSA guidelines. However, it is essential to keep documentation and receipts to ensure that you can substantiate the expense if needed.

How to Use Your FSA for Prescription Safety Glasses

1. Check Your FSA Plan: Before making a purchase, check the specific guidelines of your FSA plan to confirm that prescription safety glasses are covered. While they are generally eligible, plan details can vary.

2. Get a Prescription: Ensure you have a valid prescription from your eye doctor. Your prescription must be up-to-date, specifically for safety glasses, if required by your job.

3. Purchase from an FSA-Eligible Provider: Buy your prescription safety glasses from a provider that accepts FSA payments, like RX Safety.

4. Keep Your Receipts: After purchasing your glasses, keep all receipts and documentation. These will be necessary for reimbursement and your records.
