PRESS RELEASE (10/3/2013) – Fairfield County eyeglass and contact lens wearers will find that the continuing availability of employer Flex Plans can help make the cost of LASIK surgery affordable even in challenging economic times.
According to Dorothy Figueroa, Practice Administrator at the offices of Connecticut LASIK Surgeon and Corneal Specialist Leslie Doctor, M.D. many employers will continue to make Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Flex Plans available for LASIK again for 2014. “Patients should keep in mind that if they still have Flex Plan funds available for 2013, now is the time to use them so as not to lose them,” noted Ms. Figueroa “The extra dollars of pre tax savings Flex Plans offer for LASIK Surgery makes the cost readily affordable,” remarked Ms. Figueroa. Since a significant number of patients seeking LASIK in and around Fairfield County, Connecticut take advantage of FSAs, year end 2013 is when individuals wishing to have LASIK Surgery absolutely need to use any remaining Flex Plan funds so they are not lost at the year end. In the event that you have already used all of your allocated 2013 Flex Plan funds, then it is time to specify that you would like your employer to set aside $2,500 for you for LASIK in January 2014. Remember that if both spouses have Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) through work, it is possible for each to withhold $2,500 in order to make the cost of LASIK easily affordable. “Our patients really find that having their employer take a small amount of money out of each paycheck-especially since it is before taxes-is a great way to have LASIK with extra savings and easy payments,” stated Ms. Figueroa.
