Flexible Spending at Ritz & Johnson Fashion Eyecare Center in Ocala
Do you have a flexible spending account (FSA)? If you do, have you ever used it? Some people fund their FSA at the beginning of the year, and then just forget about it. This is a mistake because the FSA is paid for by money taking out of your paycheck over the course of the year. You decide how much to put in the account, and if you don't use the money by the end of the year, you lose it. Not using your FSA money is like giving it away, or worse, throwing it away. You then have to start over again with a newly funded FSA the next year. It's smart to spend every penny you've put in it, as you pay for it whether you use it or not.
Our Ocala Optometrist Explains a Flexible Spending Account
A flexible spending account is meant to help you pay for healthcare costs your health insurance won't cover, such as dental expenses, eye, and vision care, over the counter medications, co-pays, and other similar things. Your employer will give you a list of what expenses can be paid for with your FSA funds, and what expenses it will not cover. By knowing what you can use your FSA on and what your typical unpaid health care needs are, you can more accurately plan when it comes to how much money you decide to put in your FSA.
Some employers use a reimbursement method for accessing your FSA, but most employers these days put the funds on a dedicated debit card at the beginning of the year. The debit card can be used as a regular credit card, but will only authorize payments for approved expenses. You must use the funds in your FSA by the end of the year each year or lose them, as they do not roll over.
