This is just going totally the wrong way. I all ready don't like it because
the law make it where it don't roll over. So this to me is just a way to
steal your hard earned working money. Now they going to make you have to
have a doctor note to buy otc medicine and devices. So they are just making
it even harder for you to use your money out of the fund. I personally use
my own account that I have set up for this kind of thing and I treat it just
like the medical account. The only difference is I don't have to worry about
losing my money and I get interest off it. Just my thoughts on this.

Subject: [tabi] changes to medical reimbursement

medical reimbursement, also known as health savings accounts or medical
reimbursement accounts, used to pay for any over-the-counter medications or
medical devices.

this year, we received the notice below explaining a change in the rules; as
I understand it, this is a federal law change, and so would apply regardless
of your employer:

"You must have a doctor's prescription to pay for over-the-counter (OTC)
medications using funds from your HSA or to file an MRA claim; for example,
if you take a daily OTC allergy medicine, ask your doctor to write a
prescription and then submit the prescription with your MRA claim. If you
have an HSA, you should keep the prescription with your OTC receipt."
