Flex Plans Get Indiana Eyeglass & Contact Lens Wearers the Best LASIK Costs & Prices

Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center reminded Indiana eyeglass and contact lens wearers seeking LASIK that employer sponsored Flex Plans are a convenient and cost effective way of making LASIK prices and costs affordable.

    VALPARAISO, IN, October 02, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "The convenience of having you or your spouse's employer help you pay for LASIK with pre tax payroll deductions is a very attractive way to have LASIK," noted Kelly Connors, Refractive Surgery Coordinator. "There has been some concern that with the new Obamacare rules patients may have lost their Flex Plan benefits. This is not the case. Eyeglass and contact lens wearers can still benefit from employer Flex Plans as most companies-small and large-continue to offer employees Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Flex Plans for LASIK for 2015."

"We do however want to alert patients that if they have any remaining unused 2014 Flex Plan funds they need to use them before the end of the year or they will be lost. If you have already used all of your allocated 2014 Flex Plan funds, then you need to notify your employer to set aside $2,500 for you for LASIK so that it is available for January 2015. "An important consideration is that if both spouses have Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) through work, it is possible for each to withhold $2,500 in order to make the cost of LASIK easily affordable. For those where their Flex Plan doesn't cover the entire cost, what we are doing to is to offer easy monthly payment plans for any amount not covered by your Flex Plan," further explained Ms. Connors.

"Patients tell us all the time that having their employer take a small amount of money out of each paycheck-especially since it is before taxes-is a great way to pay for LASIK with additional savings and easy payments," stated Ms. Connors.
