- eyeglasses and contact lenses not paid through Alcoa's vision plan
- certain over-the-counter drugs

You can contribute between $100 and $5,000 annually to this fund. Note: In 2013, the maximum contribution will be $2,500 per IRS rules. You must use the money deposited in your account for expenses during the calendar year.
The Health Care Fund is completely separate from the HRA and HSA medical options.
Note: If you enroll in the HSA medical option, you also can open a Limited Flexible Spending Account for dental and vision expenses.
