DivaCup is now FSA/HSA eligible!

Period protection is finally covered.

Anything that makes period care more accessible is good news in our eyes. That’s why we’re thrilled to let you know: under the new CARES Act, menstrual cups are considered medical expenses. This means you can now use your FSA or HSA to buy yourself a brand new DivaCup directly from ShopDiva! And to make all this as easy as possible, we’ve put together a few FAQs.

So, what does FSA and HSA eligible actually mean?

Okay, let’s start with the basics. An FSA is a flexible saving account, and an HSA is a health savings account. With either account, you can use pre-tax income for medical expenses. And since menstrual products are finally classified as “medical expenses,” DivaCup is now FSA and HSA eligible.

Let’s talk FSA and HSA details.

  • What’s the deal with FSAs?
    • You can use this account to buy over-the-counter medication,
      prescriptions, thermometers, DivaCups, and a whole bunch of
      other expenses.
    • To get an FSA, you’ll need an employer to set it up.
    • If you change jobs or forget to spend your whole balance, you’ll
      lose any unused money in the account.
    • It has a lower contribution limit than an HSA.
  • What’s the deal with HSAs?
    • You can put this money toward all kinds of medical tests,
      medication, a whole bunch of other expenses
      , or, of course,
      menstrual products.
    • You can apply for an HSA if you don’t have an employer, but
      you’ll need a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) to get an HSA.
    • If you don’t use all the funds in the account, they roll over to the
      next year.
    • It has a higher contribution limit than an FSA.
  • Okay, how do I get an FSA or HSA?

    If you have an employer, check with them to see whether they
    contribute to FSA accounts for their employees. And if you’re
    self-employed, you can apply for an HSA as long as you have an HDHP.

  • How do I use my FSA or HSA to buy a DivaCup?

    submit your receipt as proof of purchase to your FSA plan
    administrator for reimbursement. Oh, and it will even cover any costs
    retroactively from January 1, 2020!

    Please note that even though our ShopDiva checkout qualifies the DivaCup as FSA/HSA eligible, we cannot confirm that your bank will accept your purchase as so. Your financial institution has the ultimate say on FSA/HSA eligibility. We advise to check with your bank before purchasing on ShopDiva to ensure that the DivaCup will be approved as FSA/HSA eligible.

  • Wait, are other Diva products eligible?

    We’re not 100% sure right now, but we’re definitely looking into it. And
