USE IT OR LOSE IT: Avoid Losing Your Vision Insurance Benefits and Flexible Spending Account Dollars
Many people participate in Vision plans, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Savings Accounts (HSA) through their employers.
Many vision benefits and flexible spending accounts (FSA) offer benefits that expire at the end of every year. This means that if you do not USE the money by the end of your benefits year (usually December 31st) you will LOSE it. In most cases, unused benefits cannot be transferred over to the New Year (usually beginning January 1st).
Most vision insurance plans entitle you to annual comprehensive eye examination and either an allowance or discounts toward eyewear or contact lenses each year.
Have you taken advantage of these benefits this year?
If you are not sure of the date of your last comprehensive eye examination at Complete Vision Care, please call us at one of our convenient locations and we can look it up for you.

If you have utilized your vision plan benefits, and still have money remaining in your FSA, why not consider a second pair of glasses so you have options or that pair of prescription polarized sunglasses you have always wanted or some colored contact lenses? These make a perfect gift for yourself or your loved ones.
Have you considered contact lenses in the past, but your vision plan only covered either glasses or contact lenses?
Now is the perfect time to give contact lenses a try! Whether it is for occasional wear (sporting events, date nights, parties, etc.) or full time wear, we have a contact lens that can meet your needs.
The holiday season is always a busy time. It is easy to forget something like vision benefits expiring or losing FSA dollars.
Be creative and use those benefits before they expire.
Avoid the holiday rush, call NOW and schedule your appointment.
