Are Diapers FSA Eligible?

Kevin Cleary

Health Products for You answers the question of whether diapers are FSA eligible items or not. Are diapers FSA eligible?” is one of the most frequent questions we are asked (“Are vitamins  FSA eligible?” gets asked a lot too, as are questions on Limited Purpose FSA and FSA rollover).  And understandably so. With a Flexible Spending Account, it is not always clear which over-the-counter products are FSA approved items and which aren’t. First aid products and sunscreens are FSA approved. Sanitary napkins and tampons were made FSA eligible last year as part of Covid relief measures. 

FSA Eligible Diapers? Depends!

So, are diapers FSA eligible?

It depends on the type of diapers.
