at work today a coworker was going on and on about how we're going to start having to get a prescription for tylenol, and other over the counter medication. i looked it up, cause it sounded an awful lot like glen beck rhetoric, but it is actually SOMEWHAT true. if you have and FSA or HSA account for health insurance you will need to get a prescription if you plan on using your HSA or FSA cards to buy the medication. since these accounts are tax-free the IRS feels it is getting screwed basically, and trying to keep people for getting reimbursed for items that aren't covered by these cards.
what do you think of this? is this another way of "taking away our freedoms" or are they just trying to recover some of the much needed taxes that people slither out of paying when using these accounts?http://www.hrmorning.com/how-reform-chan...
