Guidance on FSAs, HSAs

Without a prescription, the cost of an over-the-counter medicine or drug cannot be reimbursed from certain tax-favored arrangements starting January 1, 2011, the IRS explained in recent guidance on statutory changes made under the Affordable Care Act. Those arrangements include flexible spending arrangements (FSAs) and health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs).
