SIGIS announced on September 22 that it completed a review of its IIAS Eligible Products List©.
SIGIS determined that just over 15,000 OTC items (medicines or drugs that will require a doctor’s prescription) will be impacted by the change and will need to be removed from the list.
The good news is: Over 27,000 OTC items will remain on the list and can be purchased with a flexible spending account debit card and reimbursed without a prescription.
SIGIS also provided an interpretation regarding the eligibility of “ambiguous” items such as bandages containing antibiotic ointment.
SIGIS will release a detailed Eligible Product List on December 15, 2010.
