Changes to Health Plans
As changes continually grow more complex, Alexander, Aronson, Finning & Co., P.C. (AAF) is committed to keeping you informed of the latest news. Beginning January 1, 2011, your costs for over-the-counter drugs will no longer qualify for tax-free reimbursement from flexible spending arrangements, health reimbursement arrangements, health savings accounts, and medical savings accounts unless a prescription is obtained.
How does this affect you?
Depending on your medical needs and plan balance, you may want to schedule purchases of non-prescription drugs before the end of 2010, if allowed by the employer’s plan. You may also want to consider adjusting future contributions to the plan accordingly.
If you have any questions about this change, please call a member of our team. We are here to help!
