Hair Studio1724 Salon & Spa accepts Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)/ Health Savings Accounts (HSA)
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)/ Health Savings Accounts (HSA) cover massages for certain medical treatments. These treatments must be approved and prescribed by a physician.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) HSA ruled that massage therapy for the sole purpose of tension and stress relief does not qualify as an eligible expense. Examples of medical conditions that qualify include carpal tunnel, back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression and pain management.
How to Use an FSA/HSA for Massages
The first step to using your FSA or HSA to cover massage therapy expenses is to pay a visit to your primary care doctor or local physician. Let the doctor know you have an FSA or HSA and would massage therapy as the solution to your medically condition. The physician will then write a prescription for your massage if he/she deems it to be medically necessary. The physician must provide three pieces of information on your prescription: why the massage is medically necessary; the number of sessions per month or frequency of your visits; and, the length of treatment.
We accept your Flexible Spending Account/Health Savings Account cards for medically eligible massages and treatment.
