When people have to make out-of-pocket payments for medical and health expenses, the demand for necessary health services reduces. This is not surprising at all since research suggests that the ability to pay is unequal to the willingness to pay as these out-of-pocket payments can eat up savings, ruin credit scores, and lead to impoverishment.

Many people don’t realize there are financial schemes that can cover some of these costs, easing any strain on finances and ensuring they get what they need when they need it. The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is one such plan.

What Is FSA?

FSA is a type of savings account that you can contribute a portion of your earnings to. FSA is not subject to tax and can be used to cover certain medical and dental costs including medication and equipment.

Are Insoles FSA Eligible?

Yes. Insoles are included on the official FSA eligibility list. FSA coverage also extends to custom orthotics provided they're prescribed by a medical expert.

Not only are all of Upstep's orthotics FSA eligible, but they're also covered by the Health Savings Account (HSA) and Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA). Beyond providing coverage for your custom orthotics, Upstep goes one step further to make the process seamless and straightforward:

  • You can make a direct purchase if you have a credit card linked to your FSA account; or
  • You can request reimbursement by providing your healthcare provider with a detailed invoice from Upstep.
