Are glasses FSA and HSA eligible?
Most definitely! If they have prescription lenses, you can use either your FSA or HSA to pay for your eyeglasses and sunglasses. In fact, we might be biased, but we think glasses are the absolute best way to use your FSA/HSA.
So how do I buy glasses with my FSA/HSA funds at Liingo?
Easy. If you have an FSA or HSA card, just enter that card’s information at checkout like you normally would with any other credit card.
No FSA/HSA card? Just use your credit card like normal and then get reimbursed from your FSA/HSA provider. Most will require you to submit a reimbursement form along with a receipt. Just log into your account and print out the required info. We’ll include a receipt with your shipping confirmation email as well as a physical copy with your order.
Tell me more about this FSA.
We thought you’d never ask! A Flexible Spending Account is like a personal savings account (usually offered by your employer) that’s only used to pay for certain health care costs that aren’t typically covered by your insurance. The good news – all the FSA money you set aside is 100% tax-free, so your friends will think you’re super smart plus you’ll save money. Even better news – you can buy stylish glasses with your hard-earned tax-free money, so your friends will quickly notice both your attractiveness and wisdom.
Use your FSA funds before they expire!
Typically, you need to use your FSA money within the plan year, which quite often ends on December 31st. Use it or lose it! (Pro tip: HSA funds don’t expire from year-to-year like FSA funds.)
