Don’t Throw Away Your Flex Spending Account Credit!


Need a new pair of specs for the kids? Think it's time for an eye examination? Contemplating Lasik? The time has arrived to save big on your eye care needs. As the end of the year comes near, so does the end of your flex spending credits. If flex spending doesn't sound familiar to you, you may not be signed up for an FSA (or flex spending account) but you should verify your benefits to clarify.


If you have an FSA with your employee benefits be sure to plan ahead. The majority of plans obligate you to use all money you've contributed before the new year or you will lose it!


Using your FSA you can save big on your optometry needs. Eye examinations, eyeglasses, contact lenses, even Lasik may all be eligible for a refund. Be aware that some procedures, such as Lasik have advanced screening which takes time so schedule your appointment sooner than later.
