Flex Spending Account Information


USE IT OR LOSE IT!!! Flex spending has been around for years and still to this day I'm baffled at how many people just forget to take advantage of their untaxed dollars and treat themselves to something nice. For those patients who stumbled across this post and don't know what Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) are, there is a condition where the U.S. Government allows so many pre-tax dollars to be set aside from your paychecks to be used for medical bills. Even fewer people know that medical bills don't just coincide with medical procedures. Did you know that you can use Flex Spending dollars to purchase medical devices? and a medical device can be a contact lens? or a pair of sunglasses? Yes!

Every year we are flooded in December with requests and walk-ins who say to us, " I have so much money left to use by January 1st. What can I buy?" If you typically go to the doctor throughout the year, but this year was particularly healthy for you and (knock on wood) you still have money left to use, treat yourself to an extra pair of Tom Ford sunglasses, or those Dailies Total One contact lenses that are usually more expensive than the monthly contacts that you're used to wearing. You'll be glad you did!
