If you want better vision, our team at The Eye Clinic Surgicenter doesn’t want cost to stand in your way. LASIK vision correction is not typically covered by insurance because it is considered an elective procedure; however, we have several recommendations to help make this an attainable goal for your budget:
- LASIK financing
- Flexible Spending Account
- Tax refunds
- Credit cards
Financing is available through CareCredit. CareCredit allows you to pay over time often without incurring interest charges instead of a lump sum prior to treatment. Offering CareCredit removes the accounts receivable responsibilities from our office and allows us to focus on recommending and providing the best care to our patients.
With CareCredit, you can get a “No Interest if paid in full within the promotional period” payment plan every time you use it for qualifying transactions. Not all promotional plans are available at all Participating Professionals. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional purchase is not paid in full within the promotional period or if you make a late payment. Minimum Monthly Payments Required and may pay off purchase before end of promo period.
Flexible Spending Accounts for LASIK
If you have access to a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account, you may be able to set aside pre-tax earnings to save for LASIK and ultimately end up spending less on the overall cost. There are restrictions with these plans regarding the timeframe when the money must be used, so make sure you know all of the specific rules of your plan before enrolling. It is also advised to have a free LASIK Consultation with us prior to enrolling to ensure your eyes are right for the procedure and you know how much it will cost. You don’t want to under- or over-save and end up losing money.
Tax Refunds for LASIK
Applying your tax refund toward LASIK can be a smart use of this “found” money. Rather than spending it on vacations, electronics or shopping sprees, you will be putting that money toward improving your quality of life through vision correction.
