Don’t forget to use your FSA!
Greetings, Internet friends! We are excited to use this blog space to start discussing relevant eye-related information, from tips on keeping your peepers healthy to the launch of a new eyewear brand in our optical department. Come back to this blog often to see what’s new.
Today, we want to remind you that there are only 37 days left until the end of the year! That means there are only 37 days left to use up the money sitting in your FSA account.
A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is set up through your company’s benefits coordinator. The money saved in the FSA does NOT roll over into the next year. Check with your company’s benefits administrator on the details of your account. Please note that a FSA is NOT the same as a Health Savings Account (HSA). For more information on the differences between a FSA and HSA, click here.
The bottom line with your FSA savings is: Use it or lose it.
The good news is that eye care services and materials are eligible for FSA reimbursements. This includes:
- eye examinations
- prescription eyeglasses (including sunglasses and computer glasses)
- contact lenses
- contact lens cleaners, solutions, and rewetting drops
- LASIK and refractive surgery
The end-of-the year is coming up fast! We want to help you get all of the benefits coming to you. Call today for an appointment.
