Hard to say: This is something specific to your health care plan.Rule changes by the IRS removed over the counter products from those available as deductible on most HSA plans. Some insurers might cover this, others would not.Writing the script is the easy part.Getting it covered might be a problem.If you pay out of pocket, you would avoid the pharmacist service charge by buying it off the shelf.
