Flex Spending Account: Use It or Lose It Before Year End
Eye care professionals everywhere are reminding patients about flex spending accounts, an important end-of-year optometry benefit that will soon expire. Flexible spending accounts are a “use it or lose it” health savings account that many residents in NJ have through their employers. These FSA accounts hold contributions you have made throughout the year, from each paycheck, in pre-tax dollars.
FSA accounts come with an important catch: you must use your flexible spending account balance, in full, before year end–or any remaining funds are forfeited! The funds in your account must be used for allowed health care expenditures, such as optometry. This means that your annual vision exam will be even more beneficial: you will save money and take care of your eye health at the same time.
How Flexible Spending Accounts Save You Time and Money in NJ
Since the funds you deposit into your Flex Spending Account (FSA) are pre-tax, handled through payroll deductions, you are receiving a discount on anything you purchase with those dollars. That means you save on all our eye health services, including eye exams, eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, computer glasses, contact lenses and more. When you visit our Eyes First Vision Center, you have the convenience of choosing any of ten locations throughout the New Jersey area.
Eye Care is Health Care
When you and your family members visit Eye First vision Center, our optometry staff not only test your vision, we also help you protect your eyesight for the future. Even if you have perfect vision, you still need regular vision screening and eye healthcare exams. Your optometrist in NJ is often first to notice signs of eye health or vision problems, correcting or treating them early, to preserve your eyesight. Your optometrist can even detect certain overall health issues, like high blood pressure or diabetes in the early stages and refer you to your physician for successful heath treatment.
