MotivHealth has compiled a list of Qualified Medical Expenses as well as a list of Potential Qualified Medical Expenses and Non-Qualifying Medical Expenses. Check out the list and be sure if you’re buying it anyway, WHY NOT USE YOUR HSA MONEY!?

Another resource to purchase HSA eligible items is the HSA Store. You can use your Motiv HSA card to purchase items from the HSA Store and have them shipped to your home. This online store is a GREAT WAY to identify things you buy anyway and use TAX-FREE money to pay for it!
