As the calendar pages turn toward winter, we find ourselves thinking about the holidays and family and friends and parties on New Year’s Eve. One thing that we probably aren’t thinking about and definitely should be is our vision care benefits and remaining balances in our FSA/HSA accounts! As if there isn’t enough going on at the end of the year, we really need to remember the money that is sitting there waiting for us to spend it.
Unlike health and auto insurance – which we pay for and hope to never use – our vision care benefits and FSA/HSAs are like money in the bank. We pay all year and actually want to use them! Unfortunately, in most instances, they disappear at midnight on New Year’s Eve. As the ball drops, so do our benefits. Then all the money that you put into them is gone.
It’s so easy to get caught up in our busy lives, especially around the holidays. Don’t let time slip away! Every year, we have patients who call mid-December to schedule that last minute appointment only to find that nothing is available. Don’t let that happen to you this year!
Give us a call now. We can reserve an appointment time for you and you won’t lose any of your precious benefits. Remember, that’s just like watching your money fly out the window!
Doctor Barry Kay, Doctor Mark Deweese and the rest of us at Hollywood Eyes would like to take this moment to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
