Are Gluten Free (GF) Products Eligible?

If you suffer from Celiac Disease - absolutely!

The incremental costs associated with the purchase of GF products are claimable as a medical expense through your HSA.

However, in order for us to process the claim, we need the following:

  • Letter from a Medical Practitioner confirming the person the GF products are for suffers from Celiac Disease and therefore requires the GF products as a result of the disease; and
  • The incremental cost calculation between the cost of the GF products claimed and the cost of a similar non-GF product

You can review the CRA's guidelines for Gluten Free expenses on their website, including an example of how to calculate that incremental cost.
