Submitting Receipts to Substantiate Health Care Flexible Spending Account Debit Card Purchases


Question: Will I be asked to submit receipts to substantiate FSA debit card purchases?

Answer: Yes. In order to meet IRS guidelines, documentation of your expenses may be required. You must keep copies of all detailed receipts and itemized statements for each purchase within the plan year. You may receive a letter from PayFlex requesting documentation of an expense, which would require you to submit this information to PayFlex to comply with IRS regulations.
