Are you wondering what to spend your tax-free medical savings money on? We have a great suggestion! Did you know your Health Savings Accounts (HSA) or Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) can be used for breast pump upgrades?

How to use HSA and FSA funds for breast pump upgrades

HSA and FSA plans are useful investment accounts that allow people to use tax-free funds to pay for eligible medical expenses. Typically, the money is deducted directly from your paycheck and deposited in your account to be used for qualified expenditures like eye exams, reconstructive surgery, oxygen and even breast pump upgrades … just to name a few. Many plans come with a debit card that's linked directly to your account, and which can be used to pay for qualified expenses. If there's not enough money in your account to cover the cost, you may need to pay out of pocket first, then request reimbursement from the account once it has sufficient funds.

  • If you’ve already spoken with an Aeroflow Breastpump Specialist and have qualified for a free breast pump through your insurance plan, check your HSA or FSA account to see how much you have available to pay for your breast pump upgrade.
  • If you’ve had your eye on the Medela Pump In Style Advanced On The Go Tote or the Medela Freestyle but did not want to pay out of pocket, you can pay the additional upgrade fees with your HSA or FSA funds!
  • If you've already purchased an upgrade, check your account to see how you can get reimbursed for your expenses.

Upgrade your accessories

While it’s a huge benefit qualifying for the basic insurance breast pump, we can’t express enough how useful those extra accessories will be that come with the breast pump upgrades. Using your HSA or FSA toward a breast pump upgrade such as the Medela Metro bag will give you the pump and tubing, plus a durable carry bag, freezer kit, ice pack, storage containers and battery pack. By using your HSA or FSA you are sure to get the breast pump want and the accessories you need.
