Do you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA)? Want to use it for massage therapy at Ballaura? You can! Read on for more details on how.
Are Massages HSA-eligible?
HSAs and FSAs are accounts with funds to pay for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses. Usually these are set up as workplace benefits to help cover healthcare costs. Massage can be a qualified medical expense. If you have an HSA or FSA, here are steps for you to use them for massage:
- Get a prescription, letter of medical necessity, or a doctor’s directive on record (in your IRS tax file) to verify the qualified medical expenses.
- Schedule your service at Ballaura.
- At the time of payment, we run your card with a specialized code that we set up with our merchant account system.
Can HSA be used for spa services?
While you can use your HSA or FSA card for massage if you follow the above steps, please keep in mind that our retail products are not HSA- or FSA-qualified. Any retail products will have to be purchased separately from the service.
Using Your HSA for Massage Therapy
Here are some helpful tips before using your HSA and FSA card at Ballaura:
- Make sure your card is activated.
- Check that there are sufficient funds in the account.
- Only purchase qualified services on your HSA or FSA card.
In addition to using your HSA/FSA, we have memberships to help reduce out-of pocket-costs. In fact, we can also use your HSA or FSA card to pay for your monthly membership dues. We work hard to make massage accessible to you and encourage you to use these accounts for massage.
