Flexible spending account


Q: Can I use my health spending account or flexible saving account to take CPR and First Aid classes or buy First Aid kits?

A: Neither of these appears in the list of Qualified Medical Expenses appearing in IRS Publication 502. I can’t say whether or not someone has figured out a way qualify them for payment, however.
