LASIK Surgery Cost Affordable with Flex Plans in Maine

"Beginning on January 1, 2013, the amount each employee will be able to withhold in their Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work will be limited to $2,500 per year." Since a significant number of patients seeking LASIK in Maine take advantage of FSAs, year end 2012 is when individuals wishing to have LASIK Surgery can maximize their benefit while it is still at the $5,000 limit. In the event that you have already used all of your allocated 2012 Flex Plan funds, now is the time to specify that you would like your employer to set aside $2,500 for you for LASIK in January 2013. Keep in mind 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. "Our patients really find 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 have LASIK with extra savings and easy payments," stated Mr. Berry.
