Can I get plastic surgery on Health Savings Account?

June 28, 2013

Q: Can I pay for elective plastic surgery with the funds from a Health Savings Account?

A: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you cannot pay for elective plastic surgery using a Health Savings Account (HSA).

You can pay for cosmetic surgery if is prescribed by a doctor and is medically necessary.

You can get more HSA guidelines here (see #23).
