Flexible Spending Accounts and Eye Care
In order to offset out-of-pocket expenses, many of our Monterey cataract surgery and LASIK patients choose to use their flexible spending account (FSA) funds. Recently, the federal government has approved the use of FSA funds for vision correction procedures, including custom wavefront LASIK and premium IOLs cataract surgery.
An FSA allows you to use pre-tax income on medical expenses, including elective procedures, co-payments and other expenses not covered by health insurance. FSAs are available through your employer and allow you to set aside a certain amount of funds into your FSA each pay period.
It is important to note that FSA enrollment periods vary from one employer to another, so it is important that you obtain this information from the human resources department. In addition, FSA funds must be used within a certain time period before they are forfeited. If you plan carefully, you will be able to use your FSA funds to cover vision correction procedures and save hundreds of dollars on your out-of-pocket expenses.
If your employer does not offer an FSA, you may apply for a health saving account (HSA) through your bank. Please contact your bank directly for more information.
Call to discuss the details of this option with Yesenia at 831-324-4730. She will walk you through this process as you prepare for your vision correction procedure.
