Did you know that when you participate in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), you can use these pre-tax funds to pay for over-the-counter (OTC) medicines—many which you can get at MetroHealth Pharmacy at a discounted price!

Thanks to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, you can use your FSA or HSA funds to buy OTC medications. Those types of medications include:

  • Cold, cough, and flu medicine
  • Heartburn medications
  • Pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications
  • Allergy and sinus medicine
  • Digestive aids and laxatives
  • Baby rash ointments and creams
  • Baby electrolytes
  • Sleep aids
  • Skin treatments for conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
  • Acne medications
  • Menstrual products

And remember, when you purchase over-the-counter medicines at MetroHealth Pharmacy, you can get many of them at a discounted price.

If you’re not sure if an OTC medication can be paid for with FSA or HSA funds, stop by MetroHealth Pharmacy and talk to a pharmacist. Or call us at 216-957-MEDS for further information.
