How To Use Your FSA or HSA To Save On Prescription Glasses
December 12, 2018/
“Life happens.” We have all heard this saying, and it rings true for many different things. It’s easy to forget the small things that we initially have every intention of doing, especially when life is constantly bombarding us with new events and tasks. One of these small things you might forget is you Flexible Spending Account, or FSA.
Do you have a Flexible Spending Account? If you do, do you know the enormous benefits of having one? If the answer to the first question is “yes”, you probably know the basics of what a FSA is. It’s an amazing way to set aside money from your salary for health-related purchases. You can use these funds to pay for a variety of medical expenses for not only you, but your dependents and spouse as well. And the best part? You don’t need to pay taxes on this money, making it the perfect way to save as much as possible for the most important thing in your life, you and your family’s health.
This is where 39DollarGlasses.com comes in. You can use the funds you have leftover in your FSA to buy glasses from us! “In our business we see many people who have Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) but don’t understand how to use them in the most beneficial and economical way,” said Dr. Marc Weinstein, CEO of Value Eyecare Network and 39DollarGlasses.com.

Now that you know exactly what the benefits of a FSA is, it’s important to recognize its difference from a Health Savings Account, or HSA. Both are very similar but consist of key differences. First of all, a HSA can be established by an individual or employer whereas a FSA is only available through an employer. Also, not everyone is eligible for a HSA. There are various guidelines which determine if you qualify, one being that you already be covered under a high deductible health plan (HDHP). It’s very important to recognize not only this, but all of the differences between the two. But while there are contrasting traits for each, both can be used towards your 39DollarGlasses.com purchases!
