You can only use your Limited Purpose HRA to pay for eligible dental and vision expenses. Medical expenses are not eligible.
Here is a list of some of the eligible dental and vision expenses that you can pay for with your Limited Purpose HRA. Visit irs.gov for a full list of expenses and rules.
Baker Hughes offers the Health Care FSA and Health Savings Account to pay for medical expenses. It is against IRS regulation to file eligible medical claims under multiple savings accounts, so the Limited Purpose HRA was created for you to use your funds for eligible dental and vision expenses.
