Use Your Maternity FSA Dollars Before They Expire
Kevin Cleary

A mother’s job is never done, but unfortunately your pretax FSA dollars do expire at the end of each year. For those who contribute to a Flexible Spending Account or FSA for medical expenses, making sure you use your FSA dollars before they expire means getting the most out of your healthcare account. Identifying qualified maternity products that allow you to optimize your FSA spending may seem complicated but we here at HPFY can point you to a great deal of medical aid and maternity products that are FSA eligible and might meet your needs.

10 Best FSA Eligible Maternity Products for Mommy

The first step in maximizing your pretax FSA funds is understanding what you might need as your pregnancy progresses. Your OB/GYN can give you guidance into what you may or may not require in order to have the next nine months and after go smoothly. Maximizing your FSA contributions means using them before they expire before the end of the year. For expecting mothers this means possibly thinking a little ahead in order to maximize the current year’s FSA pretax contributions. Some maternity products that are FSA eligible can include:

1. Nutrition Now Prenatal Gummy Vitamins
