Use your FSA now and get an additional $50 to spend!

As the year’s end approaches, it’s time to remember your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and put it to good use. Call us biased, but we can’t think of a better way to use your FSA than on those beautiful eyes of yours. 

Did you know that Flexible Spending Account cover items include prescription sunglasses, eye exams, and even colored contact lenses? Now until December 1, get an extra $50 on top of your Flex Dollars at Specs Appeal in Decatur. So go ahead and snag those stylish eyeglasses you’ve been coveting (or even turn your brown eyes blue).

WHAT can I buy with my Flexible Spending dollars?
When it comes to vision-related expenses, almost every purchase is eligible. You can use your flex dollars for eye exams, copays, prescription eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, reading glasses, contact lenses, and everyday purchases such as contact lens solution and cleaners. Even your favorite designer-brand frames are covered, as long as you have a valid glasses prescription. 

WHEN do I need to spend my flex dollars before I lose them?

Since FSAs do not roll over into the next calendar year, many people need to use their funds by December 31. However, the IRS allows employers to offer an optional grace period that lets you use your FSA funds for up to two and a half months after the end of the plan year—typically March 15. Check with your employer or benefits-plan administrator to find the exact date for you.
