21 Dec Use Those Flex Dollars
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) – Take advantage of this considerable savings if offered through your employer. Check with your human resource department to inquire when open enrollment begins for your FLEX or Cafeteria Plan and find out if your account has any restrictions regarding using funds for copays. With this plan, pre-tax dollars are deducted each pay period to cover an elective procedure of your choice; in this case, LASIK or Laser Cataract Surgery. First, you should confirm your candidacy before you designate the funds. Prior to planning your FSA contribution for the year, schedule your LASIK Evaluation or Cataract Evaluation with Dr. Del Negro or Dr. Senft to see if you are a candidate for either of these elective procedures. Flex Spending funds can also be used for eyewear and contact lenses.
