I understand why people would be upset about this change as it relates to HSAs and FSAs, but a few years ago when I was enrolled in one of these plans (I'm not eligible for it now) the first thing I noticed was the plan as constituted was absolutely open to fraudulent activity with no oversight.

For example . . . Nothing would have prevented me from using FSA money to buy dozens of bottles of Tylenol for some medical malady that I was allegedly suffering at the time -- then selling them to family members and friends for cash.

IRS guidelines would have probably allowed the Tylenol for family members anyway. If not those, check out Elder Care standards, and the deal on purchasing medical insurance for a child ~ which has no age limit BTW!
