Now is the time to be sure you use the money in your Flexible Health Spending Account especially if your plan specifies that you forfeit what you don't spend by the end of the year. So, if you have been considering LASIK, this could be the perfect time to call Koby Karp at (502)897-1604 to make an appointment for a free LASIK evaluation.
New restrictions on Flexible Health Spending Accounts will take effect Jan. 1
If you don't have a Flexible Health Spending Account and you have considered having LASIK, now would be a good time to check with your employer or your bank about setting an account for next year.
Flexible Health Spending Accounts allow you to use pretax dollars to pay for dental and medical expenses that aren't covered by insurance. They're funded by deductions from your paycheck, and you must decide when you enroll in your plan how much you want to contribute during the year.
Remember, you can use money from your Flex Account to pay for co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles, along with a long list of other expenses, including elective surgery such as LASIK.
