Use Your FSA Dollars For LASIK - Save Up To 20%
Do you currently have a Flexible Spending Account? Offered by many employers, FSA's can significantly extend the value of your paycheck. These flexible accounts let you use pretax dollars to pay for eligible out-of-pocket health care expenses. You determine what your health care needs may be (outside of those covered by your insurance) and then set a certain annual amount through deductions from each paycheck. LASIK vision correction and eyeglasses are some expenses that typically are eligible expenses.
Due to the health care reform, according to a recent New York Times article, there is a big flex-spend change ahead: starting in 2013, the federal government is assigning an annual limit to the total amount employees may contribute to these plans at $2,500. Today each company sets its own annual limit and many companies have allowed much more.
This new $2,500 limit will be less than what it costs to have vision correction performed in both eyes. According to the article, using pretax dollars can save as much as 20% on LASIK. To get an idea of how beneficial using an FSA to pay for LASIK can be, think about how much of your paycheck gets taken out of each pay cycle. Any money you put into an FSA is exempt from those charges, which means if you put for example $4,000 in to cover the approximate cost of LASIK, you could avoid paying up to $1,600 in taxes to the federal government.
