What expenses are eligible for reimbursement only if medically necessary?


Some expenses are eligible for reimbursement only when a doctor or other licensed health care practitioner certifies that they are medically necessary. Your doctor's certification note or letter must indicate your specific medical disorder, the specific treatment needed, how this treatment will alleviate your medical condition, and the length of treatment required. Examples include:

  • Acne Medications/Treatment
  • Air conditioners, purifier or humidifier (for allergy relief)
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Exercise Equipment and Programs
  • Health Club Dues
  • Water fluoridation units

Please refer to the Flexible Spending Eligible Expense Guide for more information.  Download the Letter of Medical Necessity and submit to the Judiciary Benefits Center by fax at 1-800-778-0045 or by mailing to the Federal Judiciary Benefits Program, P.O. Box 35680, Louisville, KY 40232
