Individuals can now use tax-free Flex Spending
Accounts to get reimbursed for eligible medical expenses. A Flexible
Spending Account or (FSA), (also called Flex Plan, Reimbursement
Account, Cafeteria Plan, Flex 125, Tax Saving Plan, Medical Spending
Account), is an employer-sponsored benefit that allows employees
to pay for eligible medical expenses using pre-tax dollars. If employees
expect to incur medical expenses that won't be reimbursed by their
health insurance plan, a Flexible
Spending Account is for them.

Harvard Eye Associates are in-network providers for literally dozens of health and vision insurance plans. To find out whether we are providers with your insurance, please contact us in advance of your appointment. We provide complimentary insurance billing and will help you obtain prior authorization for covered procedures which require this process. Under many circumstances, insurance companies consider LASIK, Botox, Restylane, Eyelid Rejuvenation and some other procedures to be non-covered services. As each case is unique, we encourage you to learn about your own plan's offerings, and we will assist you in determining your coverage where possible.
Most out-of-pocket procedures like laser vision correction, CrystaLens, Botox, Restylane, and Eyelid Rejuvenation have a single fee that includes all post-operative visits during the routine follow-up period. Payment arrangements must be made at least seven days prior to the procedure.
Harvard Eye Associates accepts cash, check, money order, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover. We do not accept American Express. We encourage you to contact us with any questions you may have.

Why Sign Up for a Flex Spending Account (FSA)?
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) save you money by reducing your taxes. The contributions you make to a Flexible Spending Account are deducted from your paycheck before tax. This decreases your taxable income and increases your spendable income.
Important: Use it or Lose it!
If the amount you have elected for your FSA plan year is more than your actual expenses, you will have to forfeit the overage of funds you set aside. The excess amounts cannot be carried over to the following year nor can your employer return any money remaining in your FSA to you.
Talk to your employer about FSA today!
Around 90 percent of US employees work for companies who offer a Flexible Spending Account, but only about 18% of the US workforce takes advantage of this program, due to the fact most don't realize their Flexible Spending Account even exists. Ask your human resource director about open enrollment and the details about Flex Spending.
As always, Harvard Eye is first and foremost concerned about what is best for each individual patient. Call us today for your personalized consultation!
