One of the best ways to reduce or eliminate your dependence on prescription glasses and contact lenses is to under LASIK surgery. LASIK is a refractive surgery that will help reshape the cornea, allowing you to have clear vision if you suffer from myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism. Literally millions of people have benefited from LASIK surgery across the globe.
For some patients, however, the cost of getting Boston LASIK may be prohibitive. That’s understandable, especially in economic times like these. For this reason, many financing plans and payment options are available. These financing and payment options make LASIK a reality for households that cannot afford the cost of surgery. The team here at the office would like to provide you with some basic information on how the LASIK financing process works.
Our practice has partnered with CareCredit to help patients pay for their cataract surgery and refractive surgery. The system essentially works like a credit card but is used specifically for a person’s healthcare needs. CareCredit will provide you with affordable monthly payments for surgical procedures that may not be covered by your health insurance. You can apply for CareCredit online and look up additional information on the service as well.
Another option that you may want to consider is a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), which may be available to you through your employer. This is an ideal option to look into for any medical procedures that you would like to undergo that aren’t covered by your normal health insurance plan. The first step where FSAs are concerned is to speak with the benefits people at your workplace to find out if the option is available for you. They can help break down the numbers and tell you how to proceed.
