Here we are at the tail end of 2014. Perhaps you have been healthy all year & have a surplus in your Heath Savings Account (HSA) or Flex Spending Account (FSA). If you have been dreaming about a life without glasses or contact lenses, this is the perfect time to consider LASIK.
Since medical insurance doesn’t pay for LASIK, you might think it doesn’t fit the guidelines for HSA or FSA reimbursement. Think again! LASIK is a covered procedure for most FSA & HSA accounts, and many people take advantage of it. According to Dr. Jason Edmonds, “Near the end of the year, we see a lot of patients scheduling LASIK, especially if they have a ‘use it or lose it’ FSA plan. It’s like a holiday gift to themselves, to be able to see clearly without reaching for their glasses. A new year, a new you kind of thing.”
If this is something that has crossed your mind, call us for a free LASIK consultation at one of our four locations. Call (414) 271 – 2020 and think about the possibilities in 2015!
Have a great holiday season, everyone!
