Flexible Spending Account Eligible Expenses: Eye Care
Tuesday, November 08 2011
This is the time of year when you to start tallying up your flexible spending account eligible expenses, which makes it a great time of year for an exam and consultation. Glasses, contacts, and even LASIK surgery are all good ways to make the most of your FSA and make sure you do not lose any benefit. It is also a good time to come in and find out if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery.
Because you lose any unused dollars at the end of the year, we strongly encourage that you determine that you are a candidate by coming in before you designate how much you need. If you do not currently have a flexible spending account, you may want to find out if your employer offers one. An FSA allows you to set aside tax-free money for procedures not covered by your health insurance. LASIK is considered an elective procedure so most insurance plans do not cover it. The best thing to do is to come in for a consultation and let us help you decide how you need to proceed.
At Key-Whitman, we have been a leading eye care facility for over fifty years. You may think refractive surgery is expensive, but once you know your flexible spending account eligible expenses, you may be surprised to learn just how affordable LASIK can be. Ask your employer, and once you find out the details of your FSA program, let us help make your dream of new vision a reality!
