Posted on October 9th, 2012

Don’t let unspent FSA dollars haunt you

It can be scary to think about how much health care costs you and your family. If you have a flexible spending account (FSA), there’s no need to fear. Flexible Benefit Service Corporation (Flex) has conjured up six not so spooky ways to use your FSA before the end of your plan year.

  1. Prescriptions – Don’t be afraid to ask. Your doctor can write a prescription for everyday over-the-counter items.
  2. Eye Doctor – It doesn't hurt to get new glasses or contacts. Even Lasik surgery is covered. It might sound scary, but paying for it won’t be.
  3. Dentist Root canals can be a pain. Don’t let the bill drill a hole in your wallet.
  4. Medicine Cabinet – Little monster’s got a boo boo? Don’t let it scare the living daylights out of you. Stock up on bandages and cold/hot packs today!
  5. Daycare – Cost of sending your boys and ghouls to daycare draining your cash flow? Don’t forget to submit those day camp, babysitter and daycare receipts.
  6. Flu Shot – Don’t be frightened of the flu this season! Your FSA has got you covered.

Don’t get tricked; treat yourself to eligible FSA expenses before time runs out!
