Take Advantage of Your “Use it or Lose it” Flex Spending & Vision Benefits at Professional Vision Timonium & Carney!

use-it-lose-it-2

It’s that time of the year when people attempt to use up their health savings and flexible spending accounts. Both of these types of accounts can be applied towards eyewear and contact lenses. We find that many people are not aware that they have vision savings plans that also have “use it or lose it” benefits. These vision plans can sometimes be confusing as to how they work. Our team at Professional Vision does a fantastic job of helping patients understand how their vision savings plans work. Sometimes patients aren’t even aware that they have such a plan! Feel free to contact our office if you have questions, where someone on our team can look up your information to see what benefits you may have. (You can go to our Professional Vision Website for locations & contact info, or even inquiring online.) For those looking to set up an appointment with our doctors for eye health examinations, we highly suggest attempting to set up appointments as soon as possible, especially before the last week of the year. Even with a doctor usually available 6 days a week at all locations, we typically get booked the last week of the year. Happy holidays!!!
