Flex Plans Help Indiana Eyeglass & Contact Lens Wearers with LASIK Cost
"Employer sponsored Flex Plans can really help make the cost of LASIK surgery affordable for many patients," commented Kelley Connors, Refractive Surgery Coordinator at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center in Valparaiso.
PR9.NET October 02, 2013 - Valparaiso - According to Indiana LASIK surgeon Scott Buck, M.D., "Many employers have made Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Flex Plans available for LASIK again for 2014. If you still have Flex Plan funds available for 2013, now is the time to use them so as not to lose them. The extra dollars of pre tax savings they offer for LASIK Surgery make the cost easily affordable," he noted. Since a significant number of patients seeking LASIK in Indiana take advantage of FSAs, year end 2013 is when individuals wishing to have LASIK Surgery absolutely need to use any remaining Flex Plan funds so they are not lost at the year end. In the event that you have already used all of your allocated 2013 Flex Plan funds, then it is time to specify that you would like your employer to set aside $2,500 for you for LASIK in January 2014. Keep in mind that if both spouses have Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) through work, it is possible for each to withhold $2,500 in order to make the cost of LASIK easily affordable. "Our patients really find that having their employer take a small amount of money out of each paycheck-especially since it is before taxes-is a great way to have LASIK with extra savings and easy payments," stated Ms. Connors.
