Flexible Spending

Hy-Vee accepts Flexible Spending account cards.

What is a flexible spending account?
A flexible spending account (FSA) allows you to save money on health care expenses by paying with pre-tax dollars saved in a flexible spending account maintained through your employer.

How it works

  • You designate a percentage of your paycheck to be deposited into your pre-tax flexible spending account.
  • You submit receipts for your prescriptions, over-the-counter health products and co-payments to your account administrator.
  • Your expenses are reimbursed with pre-tax dollars from your flexible spending account.
  • You spend less out of pocket.

FSA CardFSA Eligible Items

What over-the-counter items are eligible for my flexible spending dollars?

Over-the-counter products used to treat symptoms of injury and illness are eligible for flexible spending reimbursement, according to the IRS. Some examples of FSA items: first aid kits, bandages and thermometers.

When you purchase items most likely to be eligible for flexible spending reimbursement, they are marked with a "H" on your Hy-Vee receipt.
