The F In FSA Doesn't Stand For 'Flexible' Anymore

If you liked the little credit card you got with your health care flexible spending account (FSA), it just got a little less useful two hours ago.  From KSAT 12:
Over-the-counter medications will no longer be reimbursable through a health care flexible spending account, or FSA, even if the account has a grace period. So, Dec. 31 is the last day to stock up on pain relievers, allergy tablets, antacids and more for people who want to use them to exhaust their use-it-or-lose-it FSA.
Over-the-counter medications will still qualify for FSA reimbursement in 2011 if the consumer has a doctor’s prescription.
