CVS/pharmacy makes it easy for consumers to track spending with HSAs and FSAs

June 20, 2008

CVS/pharmacy has installed a new system that provides consumers with receipts that track their spending with FSAs and HSAs.

CVS/pharmacy is making it easier for shoppers enrolled in health savings accounts (HSAs) and flexible spending accounts (FSAs) to save money and track eligible health purchases as part of its ExtraCare rewards program. Under a new system rolled out nationwide in early 2008, CVS/pharmacy checkout counters now provide shoppers with easy-to-read register receipts. The receipts highlight prescription medicines, over-the-counter remedies, and other qualifying purchases so they can be easily identified and tracked with a special symbol indicating which items are HSA/FSA eligible. To make redemption of HSA/FSA funds as easy as possible, CVS/pharmacy register receipts also present separate sub-totals for items that are HSA/FSA eligible.
