Reminder: Contributions to Health Care Pre-Tax Expense Accounts

December 7, 2010, Volume 57, No. 14

As a result of the new healthcare reform legislation signed into law by President Obama, over-the-counter medicines or drugs such as ibuprofen will no longer be eligible for reimbursement under the Health Care Pre-Tax Expense Account as of January 1, 2011. This means that reimbursements will be limited to physician-prescribed drugs or insulin.
