Need new specs? Guessing your prescription has changed? Considering refractive surgery? Now is the time to take care of all of your eye care needs. As the year's end comes near, so does the end of your flex spending dollars. If you haven't heard of the term you likely don't have a flex spending account but you might want to confirm your insurance plan to make sure.
If you contribute to a Flex Spending Account with your employee benefits check how much credit you have left. Most FSA's require you to use all money you've contributed no later than December 31st or you will lose it!
Using your flex spending credits you can get big savings on your optometry needs. Eye and contact lens exams, eyeglasses, contacts, even laser surgery may all meet the requirements for reimbursement. Be aware that some procedures, such as Lasik require advanced screening which could cause a delay so book an appointment sooner than later.
If you have any questions, we are happy to go over your vision care benefits with you. Our Winston Salem, NC Optometry Practice is here to help you with all of your eye care concerns!
