Use Your Benefits Before Year-End

insuranceHappy Holidays!  Too Soon?  Well, the holidays are here and before your calendar fills up with parties, events, and other obligations, make sure you are scheduling time for YOU.

It is the end of the year and many insurance benefits reset once the clock hits 12:00 AM, January 1, 2017.  Call your doctor and schedule missed medical and dental appointments. Don’t let your benefits go to waste.  You’ve earned them!

Do you know how much money is left in your Flexible Spending Account?  Another good reason to take care of medical and dental work now is to spend any remaining money you have in this pre-tax account. You generally must use the money in an FSA within the plan year, though there are some exceptions.  For most of us, this is a “use it or lose it” benefit.

Here are a few ideas for spending any remaining money in your FSA account before the end of the year:

  • Eye exams
  • Glasses
  • Contacts
  • Contact lens disinfectant solution and saline
  • Annual physical
  • Co-payments for doctor visits
  • Dental work
  • Orthodontic work
  • Prescriptions
