Looking for new specs for the kids? Think it's time for an eye exam? Contemplating refractive surgery? Now is the time to save big on your eye care needs. As the year's end advances, so does the end of your flex spending dollars. If flex spending doesn't strike a familiar chord you may not be signed up for an FSA (or flex spending account) but you might want to verify your health plan to make sure.
If you contribute to an FSA through your employee benefits be sure to plan ahead. The majority of plans require you to use all contributions by December 31st or you will lose it!
You can use your FSA to get big savings on your optometry needs. Comprehensive eye exams, eyeglasses, contacts, even laser vision correction may all meet the requirements for a refund. Be aware that some procedures, such as Lasik require advanced screening which takes time so book an appointment as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, call us to review your eye care benefits with you. Our Overland Park, KS Eye Care Practice is here to help you with all of your eye care concerns!
