St. Louis, Missouri -
Brinton Vision, a LASIK surgery clinic in St. Louis, MO, has recently published a blog post titled, “Can I Use My HSA or FSA for LASIK?” The article explains the benefits of using a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for a LASIK eye surgery. It also provides answers to questions on what an HSA and FSA are, the tax benefits that can be obtained when using them to pay for LASIK, and other payment alternatives for those who don’t have an HSA or FSA. The doctors at Brinton Vision are always ready to help patients in determining which of the seven modern refractive surgery alternatives suits them best.
The article states, “You can pay for your LASIK procedure using pre-tax money through a tax-free Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), which could result in saving 20–30% for those who qualify. The year 2023 is quickly approaching, so it’s time to schedule your LASIK consultation with Brinton Vision and start the new year with clearer vision.”
The article explains that these funds may be enough to pay for the LASIK procedure in full, depending on how much the patient has in the account. The 2023 limitations for pre-tax contributions to HSA and FSA accounts have been increased substantially, as up to $3,050 can be saved as an individual in a health care FSA, which represents a $200 increase from the 2022 cap. Some employers may also contribute to the FSA accounts of their workers. Meanwhile, the HSA offers another pre-tax health financing alternative. Individuals may contribute up to $3,850, while families may contribute up to $7,750 in 2023.
It is recommended that people plan ahead for their LASIK surgery and then coordinate with their doctor in the timing of their procedure when considering how they can benefit from the FSA grace period or HSA rollover. While laws could change at any time, at the present time, refractive surgery is an eligible expense for both FSA and HSA accounts.
Brinton Vision utilizes seven diagnostic technologies for evaluating the health of the eyes and the best procedure to improve their vision. Even if a particular patient is not an ideal candidate for LASIK, Brinton is one of the few LASIK providers in the US that can provide all six modern LASIK alternatives. All of these are proven treatments for providing clear, natural vision for people who have steep astigmatism, high prescriptions, age-related vision loss, or thick or thin corneas that the LASIK procedure is unable to treat. They can also offer solutions for many individuals who have undergone the earlier versions of the LASIK procedure.
