Toothbrushes/Toothpaste not covered under flex spending?

Must Read

I’ve got some extra in the flex account this year and was shopping to stock up on things we use.

I found it odd that toothbrushes and toothpaste are not considered eligible health care items. Any medical procedure requires a dentist approval as the links between oral care and health are pretty much proven at this point (I think).

So, I have two questions: does anyone know why general oral care items are not covered? And is there a process to adding them? Is this an act of Congress, or who manages this list?
