Do You Have a Flex Spending Account?
Use it on LASIK and Save As Much as 20-30%
Flexible spending accounts, also known as cafeteria plans, are employer-sponsored programs that allow employees to use pretax dollars to pay for LASIK or other healthcare expenses. Many people who have this benefit don’t even know about it, so it’s worth asking your company’s HR department about the possibility. Depending on your tax bracket, your savings could be 20-30%, if not more, by the time you account for the fact that your FLEX money avoids Federal, State, Social Security and Medicare taxes!
All flexible spending plans require you to “opt-in” at a certain time of the year, and then your funds become available at a later date. With most plans you opt-in sometime in November or December, and your funds become available on January 1 of the next year. For details on your specific plan, you will need to contact your benefits administrator.
If you are thinking about using your flexible spending account for LASIK, it is important to first let us make sure you are a candidate, because if you set aside funds for LASIK and you’re not a candidate, you could end up losing your money, unless you have some other healthcare expense to use it on.
Health savings accounts can also be used to pay for LASIK with pretax dollars. Since these are individual accounts, simply contact your financial institution to learn how to use account funds for LASIK.
We can help you use your FSA or HSA for LASIK.
