2020 Further Flexible Spending Account Changes

Dear Further Member,

These are challenging times, and we know many Americans are looking for ways to save money.

That’s why we want you to be aware of the recent passing of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES Act) and what it means for you. With the CARES Act, you no longer need a prescription to purchase over-the-counter medicine, and you can buy feminine hygiene products (among other items) with your health savings account (HSA) funds.

More information is available here. These changes are permanent.

This means you can now use the funds in your HSA to purchase items, such as:

  • Tampons, pads, and liners
  • Pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications
  • Cold, cough, flu, allergy and sinus medicine
  • Baby electrolytes, rash ointments, and creams

And so much more. See Our Full List.

Effective January 1, 2020

These changes apply to purchases dating back to January 1, 2020. That means if you have purchased any of these items since the beginning of the year, you can file for reimbursement from your HSA.

For information on getting reimbursed, click here.


If you have questions about the CARES Act or your account, please contact us at our Member Services line at 1-800-859-2144 or by email at We are available Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. CDT.

Sidewalk Closure – Due to Elementary School Project

Important information regarding the 17th Street area and sidewalk south of the new elementary school construction site:

On Monday May 4, 2020, the construction crews working on the new elementary school project will be closing the sidewalk on the North side of 17th Street to complete dirt work and landscaping. Barricades will be placed stating sidewalk is closed at 9th St. and at the West end of the School parking lot. No parking will be allowed on the South side of 17th Street to allow pedestrian traffic to use the South side to pass through the work zone. The sidewalk will reopen when they are finished with the landscape work in July.
