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!
