Using HSA, HRA, FSA Dollars to Pay for the National DPP Lifestyle Change Program

Guidance provided by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in Publication 502 suggests that under certain circumstances individuals may be able to use funds in their Health Savings Accounts (HSA), Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) or Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) to cover the costs of participating in the National DPP Lifestyle Change Program. According to the IRS’ guidance, individuals would need to be diagnosed by a physician with a disease such as obesity, hypertension, or heart disease to use funds in their HSA account.

The IRS stipulates the following:

You can include in medical expenses amounts you pay to lose weight if it is a treatment for a specific disease diagnosed by a physician (such as obesity, hypertension, or heart disease). This includes fees you pay for membership in a weight reduction group as well as fees for attendance at periodic meetings. You can’t include membership dues in a gym, health club, or spa as medical expenses, but you can include separate fees charged there for weight loss activities.

Note: Individuals should consult with an HSA or tax expert to ensure any expenditure of HSA funds complies with IRS guidance.

Contact your insurance provider or wellness coordinator for information on coverage options.
