FLEX SPENDING ACCOUNT: One of the most popular ways to reduce the total cost of LASIK is to use an employer-provided flexible spending account. These accounts allow the employee to set aside pre-tax dollars for approved medical expenses. Depending on income, this benefit can save patients as much as $2000.00! Check with your human resources department or the benefits office at your place of employment to see if this is available to you. Remember to plan ahead, money must be placed in these accounts months ahead of the time of service.
CREDIT CARD: Many patients use credit cards to pay for their procedures and this can be very beneficial for patients who have benefits on their credit cards, such as airline miles or cash back. At Eye Care Specialists, we accept all major Credit Cards.
BANK LOAN: If CareCredit is not an option for you, approach your bank instead. Inquire about a personal loan or a line of credit. Interest rates will vary depending on the length of the loan, but it is suggested that you go with the shortest loan term that has monthly payments you can afford.
SEMINAR SPECIAL: We run these seminars every few months and they serve as a great opportunity to save money and view an actual Laser Refractive procedure. Call to find out when our next seminar is. 781.769.8880.
INSURANCE SPECIAL: Although Laser Eye Surgery is considered to be cosmetic and as a result is not fully covered by most insurance plans, more and more health plans are now offering partial payment for LASIK/PRK patients. Even if we are not a direct provider on your plan, we will happily review your options and make every attempt to honor your benefit allowance.
