Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Savings Accounts
Whether choosing an elective vision correction procedure or a premium lens with cataract surgery, you can use your health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) as options to work the surgery into your family’s budget. These plans typically allow you to set aside funds on a pre-tax basis for use on specific medical expenses. Plans vary and enrollment periods differ, so be sure to check with your employer or investment professional for details on these accounts. IRS regulations may not permit unused funds to be returned to you at the end of the year so what better way to spend them than on great vision!
