  • Portland-South Portland, ME (1888PressRelease) October 02, 2014 - Portland, Maine "While there has been some confusion and uncertainty with Obamacare, Maine eyeglass and contact lens wearers will be pleased that they can continue to use employer Flex Plans to get the best effective prices and manage the cost of LASIK," noted Kathy Brackett, Human Resources Manager at Eyecare Medical Group in Portland, ME. "For certain, patients wanting LASIK come to see us first and foremost because they want to be sure they will get the best possible results and choose us based on reputation, experience and personalized care," explained Erica Mitchell, Refractive Surgery Manager. "Then, most everyone wants to know how to have LASIK in the most cost effective way-with the best prices and cost possible," stated Ms. Mitchell. "Patients considering LASIK tell us it is really convenient and cost effective to have their employer take a small amount of money out of each paycheck-especially since it is before taxes-in order to have LASIK with both additional pretax savings and easy payments," Ms. Brackett explained.

    What You Need to Know About Flex Plans of FSAs for LASIK
    Year end 2014 is when individuals wishing to have LASIK surgery absolutely need to use any allocated Flex Plan funds so they are not lost as the calendar year comes to an end. If you have already used all of your 2014 Flex Plan funds, then it is time to notify your employer to set aside $2,500 for you to be available for LASIK in January 2015. "Sometimes patients don't realize that 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. Also, what people interested in LASIK need to know, is that for those where their Flex Plan doesn't cover the entire cost, what we are doing is to offer easy monthly payment plans for any amount not covered by your Flex Plan," stated Ms. Brackett.
