IRS alert: Are diet foods considered qualified medical expenses?

Updated: Mar 29

Understanding what is, and what is not a "qualified medical expense" under IRS Section 213D is a critical part of running a successful HSA, HRA, or FSA program.

No, you can't just put anything that's "good for you" on the list.

The IRS recently issued an alert after they noticed one or more "wellness companies" claiming that they found a loophole to make low-carb foods a qualified medical expense.

If only it were that easy.

There's a big warning that comes as a part of all this - make sure you watch the video for all the details.
