Flexible Spending Account (FSA) with Discovery Benefits

The CARES Act was signed into law to help Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic. The CARES Act permanently reinstated over-the-counter products as eligible expenses for Flexible Spending Account funds without a prescription.  

If items are purchased at a non-approved vendor within the inventory information approval system (IIAS) you will need to claim the expense through the standard reimbursement format using your receipt; however if you purchase a qualified item at an approved IIAS vendor it should not require further substantiation.  If Discovery Benefits requests further substantiation, it will be necessary for you to submit it, even if the item was a qualified item purchased at an IIAS vendor.
