Suppose I buy some prescription eyeglasses from an online site. Then suppose after I get them I decide I don't like them, and I return them. In such a case, the seller may charge me some fee (e.g., a "restocking fee"), so that I am not refunded the entire amount.
If I had kept the glasses, I could have reimbursed myself from an HSA. Since I didn't keep them, can I still reimburse myself for the fees I incurred? Is "buying eyeglasses and trying them out but then returning them" a qualified medical expense for an HSA, even if I don't wind up with the actual glasses?
I'm asking about eyeglasses, but one could imagine the same sort of question applying to other types of devices (e.g., insulin pumps, orthotics, etc.) that could plausible be purchased and returned for various reasons. I'm curious to know how the question would apply more generally.
