Are retired parents typically considered "dependents" under their children's Health Spending Account?

My job offers an HSA and the policy does not explicitly identify parent-associated health expenses as being eligible to be reimbursed by the HSA.

Is this the norm?

Contact your health benefits administrator.
My plan defines dependent as follows:

“ What is a dependent for health insurance? When it comes to health insurance, your dependent can be your spouse or partner, and any children you have. Your dependents are covered under your plan which means they could be entitled to benefits you might have through your workplace or a personal plan you hold.”

Yes he needs to ask.
