FedEx Freight | Optum card

Has anyone tried using the Optum card at the online store? I've tried purchasing medicine that I'm eligible for, but my card gets declined at checkout time. I thought we were allowed to use our allowance before we lose it on those items

Are you trying to use the FSA (FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT)? or HRA (HEALTH REIMBURSEMENT ACCOUNT)? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you can only purchase medicine and medical related items from the FSA account. HRA account can I be used for medical co-pays and medical bills.
I think only FSA is for the medicine. I was able to get reimbursed by Optum HRA account for chiropractic services.
Our HR woman told us that optum has an online store of some sort. She was saying that as of Jan 1 2025 you lose any money over $1000 in your HSA. So her recommendation is to spend any extra money in their online store so you don't lose it.
