How to use HSA or FSA benefits for CPAP Equipment?
What is the difference between HSA and FSA?
It is importantly first of all to understand the difference between HSA and FSA benefits. The primary difference is that HSA has funds that belong to you and roll over, but FSA funds are owned by the employer and may expire. Additionally, the FSA funds may even be lost if you lose the job that funds the FSA. Both options are great for people that want a tax advantaged way to save for medical expenses.
