"Flex plans for LASIK have always been helpful and important for our LASIK patients," explained Kelley Connors of Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center.
Gary, IN (1888PressRelease) October 06, 2012 - "As we enter the final months of the 2012 this is the time to use your 2012 Flex Plan for LASIK Surgery as many patients might not realize that effective January 1, 2013, the amount each employee will be able to withhold in their Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work will be limited to $2,500 per year," Ms. Connors further explained. Since a significant number of patients seeking LASIK in Indiana take advantage of FSAs, year end 2012 is when individuals wishing to have LASIK Surgery can maximize their benefit while it is still at the $5,000 limit.
In the event that you have already used all of your allocated 2012 Flex Plan funds, now is the time to specify that you would like your employer to set aside $2,500 for you for LASIK in January 2013. Keep in mind 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 appreciate the convenience of 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. Connors.
