HSAs and transportation costs

Question: 
Can you use an HSA to pay mileage for driving to a doctor’s appointment?
Answer: 

Yes. An HSA owner can use an HSA to pay actual out-of-pocket expenses for using his or her own car for transportation to a medical facility or can use a standard mileage rate ($.17 for 2017). Fees for tolls and parking can also be included. The cost of picking up medicine is also generally considered a necessary part of medical care. HSA owners should keep a mileage log to track miles in case of an IRS audit. This can add up to a lot of tax-free money. Learn more about what counts as a qualified medical expense in the webinar.
