provide the prescription for the medicine, along with "other information from an independent third party that satisfies the requirements." This includes:
A customer receipt issued by a pharmacy which identifies the name of the purchaser or the name of the person for whom the prescription applies, or
The date and amount of the purchase and an Rx number satisfies the requirements for over-the-counter medicines or drugs, or
A receipt without an Rx number accompanied by a copy of the related prescription.
Please note that over-the-counter medications prescribed for general good health or prevention are not reimbursable, even with a doctor’s prescription.
THE NEW RULE DOES NOT APPLY TO OTC EXPENSES THAT ARE NOT MEDICINES OR DRUGS
These rules do not apply to over-the-counter items that are not medicines or drugs, including but not limited to equipment (such as crutches), supplies (such as bandages), and diagnostic devices (such as blood sugar test kits). Such items may qualify for reimbursement under an HRA if they otherwise meet the definition of medical care in Code Section 213(d).
