Get Glasses for the New Year with Your FSA

flexible spending account

Use your Flexible Spending Account by the end of the year to cover non-covered medical expenses such as eyeglasses.

Use Your flexible spending account (FSA) and celebrate the New Year with new glasses. Stanton Optical accepts flexible spending accounts and many vision and health insurance plans at each of their optical stores.

FSA’s allow you to appoint a portion of your pre-tax income, up to $2,500, into an account you can use to pay for medical expenses not covered by your regular health insurance plan. Flex plan funds are often used to pay for dental and eyecare expenses, such as copays and medical supplies, not covered under the employee’s health insurance plan.

Use Your Flexible Spending Account

Flex accounts are called use-it-or-lose-it plans. If you don’t use the money you allocated to the account by the end of the year, you lose the money saved in the plan. Some companies have a grace period of a month or two to use any unused portions of the FSA.

Many employers offer flexible spending accounts as part of their employee benefits package. Ask a member of your Human Resources department about all the benefits available to company employees.

Over-the-counter medications are not eligible for FSA purchases. A few items you can use the money for include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractic visits
  • Contacts and contact lens cleaning solutions
  • Dental work
  • Diabetic testing supplies and insulin
  • LASIK surgery
  • Prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, reading glasses
