Theragun Products are now FSA-approved
As of 2023, Theragun products and other percussion massagers are now FSA-approved. There is no longer a need for a letter of medical necessity and all retail locations that accept FSA or HSA cards will allow you to purchase Theragun products.
Are all Therabody products FSA and HSA eligible?
Many Therabody products are FSA and HSA eligible, but some are not. Therabody products that are intended to treat a specific medical condition and would not be used but for this medical need are considered FSA and HSA eligible.
Until recently, many Therabody products (including the Theragun) were not FSA eligible. In 2023, this changed with percussion massagers and other muscle recovery items becoming tagged with the FSA/HSA eligible status.
Prior to 2023, the products were considered to be “dual-purpose" (i.e. not eligible for FSA/HSA). As we mention in other articles, dual-purpose products are not qualified for FSA/HSA spend unless they're accompanied by a letter of medical necessity from a medical professional.
What changed? Well, the industry group in charge of approving FSA/HSA products determined that these items would not be used but for the medical need. The need in this case is for muscle recovery, aiding in the repair of damaged muscle tissue and overall pain relief (all which are qualified medical expense categories).
