LASIK and PRK Financing Options Place Clear Vision Comfortably within Your Budget

Paying for LASIK with FSAs
LASIK eye surgery is a popular procedure that can help people achieve better vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. However, the cost of LASIK can be a barrier for some people. Fortunately, there are options for financing LASIK, including using a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or a Health Savings Account (HSA).
An FSA is an account that allows you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible medical expenses, including LASIK. The funds in an FSA must be used by the end of the plan year, or you may lose them. Some employers offer a grace period or a carryover option to allow employees to use the funds after the plan year ends.
To use an FSA to pay for LASIK, you will need to check with your FSA administrator to make sure the expense is eligible. In most cases, LASIK is an eligible expense, but it’s always best to confirm before scheduling the procedure.
An HSA is a tax-advantaged savings account that can be used to pay for eligible medical expenses, including LASIK. To be eligible for an HSA, you must have a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). The funds in an HSA roll over from year to year and can be invested to grow tax-free.
To use an HSA to pay for LASIK, you will need to check with your HSA administrator to make sure the expense is eligible. In most cases, LASIK is an eligible expense, but it’s always best to confirm before scheduling the procedure.
Difference Between FSAs and HSAs
While both FSAs and HSAs can be used to pay for LASIK, there are some key differences between the two types of accounts. FSAs are employer-sponsored and have a use-it-or-lose-it provision, while HSAs are individual accounts that can be carried over from year to year. Additionally, FSAs can only be used to pay for eligible medical expenses, while HSAs can be used for a wider range of expenses, including long-term care insurance premiums and Medicare premiums.
In summary, using an FSA or an HSA can be a great way to finance LASIK eye surgery. However, it’s important to understand the rules and regulations governing these accounts to ensure that you use them correctly. If you’re considering LASIK, be sure to check with your FSA or HSA administrator to determine your eligibility and to get more information about the process.
If you don’t have access to an HSA or FSA benefit from your employer, don’t worry. At Dr. Holzman’s Holzman Laser Vision practice, we understand that affordability is essential for our patients. That’s why we offer interest-free financing plans, making the cost of treatment more manageable by dividing it into convenient monthly installments. If you have a good credit history and opt for shorter payment plans, you can enjoy the lowest interest rates. Our dedicated patient coordinators are ready to assist you in applying for financing either in-office or online, allowing you to secure credit approval before your consultation at two locations. Your vision care is our priority, and we strive to make it accessible to everyone.
