COVID-19 and Your Prescription Drug Benefits

COVID-19 and the Health Savings Account (HSA)

Paying for Over-the-Counter Drugs and Feminine Hygiene Products

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allows you to use before-tax accounts to pay for OTC drugs without a prescription.

The CARES Act also recognizes feminine hygiene products as eligible for reimbursement from your before-tax accounts, but masks, surgical gloves and hand sanitizers generally are not.
