Can I use my healthcare FSA to pay for a breast pump?

And, if so do I need a prescription?
I have a pump but it is worn out. My FSA $ 'expire' on the 31st of this month! I'd love to spend them on this, if it is allowed.
Thanks for your help!

It should be allowed. I bought over the counter items with mine (as long as they were medical related, I would think it was okay). Sure, just get your child's ped. to write a script or your obgyn. Just have them put "breast pump". I've heard of others doing that. The fsa is YOUR money anyway.

Yes! I have a flex card that I can use as a credit card of sorts for medical purchases. I would buy the pump from a pharmacy or medical supply store so that there will not be any issues. Make sure to get the script too, before the purchase date. Aren't fsas awesome!
