Now it’s easier than ever to invest in better sleep and overall wellness. Oura Ring is now covered and reimbursable via Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA). This means you can take full advantage of your pre-tax dollars to support your health journey with Oura.
Sleep’s Role in Preventative Healthcare
Sleep is fundamental to health, influencing everything from cognitive function to physical performance. According to the CDC, people who are consistently sleep deprived (which is 1 in 3 of us!) are more likely to experience health problems like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer.
Healthcare providers are increasingly recognizing the profound impact of sleep on preventative health measures. “People dramatically underestimate how much sleep is linked to all the diseases killing us,” says sleep scientist Matthew Walker, Ph.D., author of Why We Sleep and an Oura advisor. “Sleep is the Swiss army knife of health. When sleep is deficient, there is sickness and disease.”
Plus, research, including many studies done using Oura Ring specifically, has pointed to the benefits of a good night’s sleep on various health outcomes, including mental, reproductive, metabolic, and cardiovascular health.

Why You Should Take Advantage of This Coverage
The inclusion of Oura Ring in FSA and HSA coverage opens up new doors for how you take care of your health. Here’s why it’s a game-changer:
- Save on cost: When you utilize an FSA or HSA funds, you’re using your pre-tax dollars to buy your Oura Ring. Reimbursements from these funds are tax-free, which means that you’re converting some of your salary into tax-free income.
- Use it or lose it!: When you enroll in an FSA, the IRS requires you to spend any contributions in your account by an annual deadline. Otherwise, the money is forfeited. Due to this, more than 40% of FSA account holders forfeit a portion of their contributions.
- Manage your heart health: Using Oura you can track and monitor important metrics like heart rate, respiratory rate, and heart rate variability. These provide valuable insights into your heart health, which is a fundamental component of your overall wellness.
- Invest in your holistic health: It can be daunting to take the first step toward a healthier life. By allocating FSA/HSA funds for Oura Ring, you’re making a deliberate investment in your long-term health. This investment yields dividends in the form of data-driven daily insights that can be used to inform better sleep and healthier habits.
