At the Benjamin Eye Institute, we know that paying for your procedure can be overwhelming. As such, we offer a variety of financing and payment options to make it easy to get the care you need to take care of your eyes.

CareCredit healthcare credit card for better vision.

There is an easier way to pay for your vision care including LASIK. We’re pleased to accept the CareCredit credit card, North America’s leading patient healthcare financing program. It is the credit card exclusively designed for healthcare services. CareCredit offers special financing on purchases of $200 or more* for healthcare procedures not commonly covered by insurance, including LASIK and Premium-IOLs.

CareCredit lets you begin your procedure immediately — then pay for it over time with monthly payments that fit easily into your budget. Whether you’re considering LASIK, need cataract surgery, or it’s simply time for new glasses or contacts, CareCredit can help you see clearer, sooner.

Taking advantage of flexible spending accounts and tax deductions

There are two ways to save your tax money on your medical expenses. The first is by medical expense tax deduction, and the second is with your company’s flex spending plan.

If your medical expenses reach 7.5% of your income in any given year, the price of procedures and ophthalmic services not covered by insurance can be deducted for tax purposes. In May 2003, the IRS confirmed that laser vision correction is also qualified as a medical expense for this purpose. Most people, however, don’t end up reaching the 7.5% threshold. Therefore, they turn to another popular program – flex spending.

What is a flexible spending account? A flexible spending account (FSA), (also called a flex plan, reimbursement account, flex 125, tax saving plan, medical spending account, a section 125, or a cafeteria plan), is an employer-sponsored benefit that allows you to pay for eligible medical expenses on a pre-tax basis. If you expect to incur medical expenses that won’t be reimbursed by your regular health insurance plan, you can take advantage of your employer’s FSA, if one is offered.

What are the benefits? FSA saves you money by reducing your income taxes. The contributions you make to a flexible spending account are deducted from your pay BEFORE your Federal, State, or Social Security Taxes are calculated and the contributions are never reported to the IRS. The benefit is that you decrease your taxable income and increase your spendable income which can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year.

How does flexible spending work? At the beginning of the plan year (which usually starts January 1st), your employer asks you how much money you want to contribute for the year (there are limits) into your flexible spending account. You have only one opportunity each year to enroll, unless you have a qualified “family status change,” such as marriage, birth, divorce or loss of a spouse’s insurance coverage. The amount you designate for the year is taken out of your paycheck in equal installments each pay period and placed in a special account by your employer. As you incur medical expenses that are not fully covered by your insurance, you submit a copy of the Explanation of Benefits or the provider’s invoice and proof of payment to the plan administrator, who will then issue you a reimbursement check.

What expenses are eligible? Any expense that is considered a deductible medical expense by the IRS and is not reimbursed through your insurance can be reimbursed through the FSA. This includes most elective surgeries, laser vision correction, deductibles, eyeglasses and prescription drug co-payments.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
