Flexible Savings Account

Use money from your Flexible Spending Account for Lasik.  
   

Around 90 percent of employees work for companies who offer a Flexible Spending Account (FSA, Flex Account) to help lower net healthcare costs. FSAs allow you to use pretax income on medical expenses not normally covered by medical insurance, like Lasik.

No Limits

No Federal dollar limits apply, but most employers set maximum annual contribution level; usually around $5,000. Your employer will deduct a contribution to your FSA from your pretax income with each paycheck. You will decide how much.

Use It Or Lose It

The one major caveat to FSAs is the "use it or lose it" provision. All of the FSA money set aside must be used during that same year. If not used, it cannot be rolled over into the next year and you actually lose the money. You'll need to do a little planning to decide how much you want set aside from your paycheck to fund out-of-pocket medical expenses. Talk with your employer's human resources department about your company's FSA.
