Default Flexible Spending Account Question

Hi I am new to this board and hope someone can help. I have insurance that covers IVF but it will not cover DE. Do you know if the flexible spending account can be used the cover the donor and all of her expenses?

I found the answer and is YES!

Costs directly related to obtaining an egg donor are deductible as medical expenses whether or not the attempt to conceive succeeds. Taxpayers who attempt to conceive using donated eggs and who participate in company medical flexible spending accounts are now eligible for reimbursement from the plan, thus giving them the equivalent of a deduction without the adjusted-gross-income limits.
