    Understanding miscarriage

    Miscarriage is very common and it’s a topic.  It is estimated that 1:6 of pregnancies will end in miscarriage.

    While FSAs also have tax benefits, they are only available as part of a benefits package from an employer, but the medical expenses you can use it on are very similar to an HSA. Typically, FSA funds are “use or lose” each year, while unused balances in HSA accounts roll over into the next year.
