Are you ready for 2016? Have you made your resolutions? Have you made party plans? And, equally importantly, have you spent all of the money in your health insurance plan’s flexible savings account (FSA)? You only have until December 31st to do so. One of the easiest ways to spend down your FSA is to get glasses – read on to learn more.
FSAs and Eligible Expenses
For the vast majority of FSAs, eyeglasses are eligible expenses. When you hear the word “eyeglasses,” you might think it only applies to prescription glasses. Depending on your FSA, that might not be the case.
Your FSA might cover eyeglasses with or without lenses. So, if you’re interested in getting another pair of frames, this could be your opportunity!
Reading glasses may also be an eligible FSA expense. If you’ve noticed you have difficulty reading, investing in a pair of reading glasses might be worthwhile.
Have you realized that you need prescription sunglasses when you’re outdoors? Prescription sunglasses are useful all year round. Even during the winter, the sun’s reflection can create glare on snow and ice.
If You Waited There’s Next Year!
After New Year’s Day, you’ll have lost the FSA money you accumulated over the course of the year. That would be a shame to let that money go to waste, especially if you really need glasses.
What can you do? Take the time to read over your health insurance policy carefully. If you’ve still got questions, call your insurance company. They’ll be able to give you the information you need.
If it turns out you’ve still got money in your FSA left and you or a family member needs new glasses, contacts, or prescription sunglasses, book an appointment with an eye doctor. You should do this as soon as possible, because there are many other people who are in the same situation as you – they also need to empty their FSAs before January 1st rolls around, and they’ve also concluded that they need new eyeglasses.
Do you want your eyeglasses right away? There are a number of online stores where you can purchase eyeglasses, and you can receive them the very next day! All you need to do is provide your prescription.
