Avoid Losing your Vision Insurance Benefits and FSA Dollars

by | Nov 26, 2018 | FSA, Insurance | 0 comments

The end of the year is quickly approaching. In many cases, unused vision insurance benefits and flex spending accounts from this year will not be carried over to the new year. This means: use it or lose it!

Here at Specs Appeal, we are here to answer any questions you have. We want to make sure that you are able to take advantage of those benefits before they run out. We accept a wide range of vision insurance plans, including VSP, Eyemed, & Davis Vision to name a few. If you want to see if we accept your plan, you can take a look at them here.

Most Vision insurance plans help to subsidize the following:

  • General Eye Exam
  • Eyeglass Frames
  • Contact Lenses

Vision insurance coverage can be intimidating. Our staff will guide you every step of the way so you can maximize your benefits.

FSA for Glasses, Prescription Sunglasses and More

If you have a Flexible Spending Account, (FSA), don’t wait until the last week of December to take care of yourself and your vision. It tends to get busy towards the end of the year, make your eye exam early.

How Does FSA work?

When you sign up for FSA, money from each paycheck is automatically deposited into an account. You can use this account to pay health expenses that aren’t covered by insurance. You decide on the amount in advance, and since the contributions are not taxed, each dollar goes further. An FSA can provide you with tax-fee dollars to use toward any eye care expenses not covered by your vision insurance plan.
You can use your FSA to purchase prescription eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses, Eye Exams, Co-pays & deductibles, Retinal Wellness Exam upgrades, Dry Eye treatments, and more.

The first step is to schedule an eye exam.
Use this as a starting point for spending your FSA funds. You’ll learn if you have any vision issues that should be addressed and if you need new glasses or contact lenses.
