Flex Spending Accounts
When you’re looking for a Southfield throat doctor, we at Downriver ENT aim to be your premier choice. We’re glad to provide the knowledge and treatment of any potential ear, nose, and throat problems that you may have or be concerned with. As your trusted ENT doctor in Dearborn, MI, we’re proud to put our patients first and we’re glad to offer a variety of different payment options in order to best accommodate you. One such financial option that we offer is payment through flex spending accounts.
What Are Flex Spending Accounts?
Flex spending accounts are special benefits accounts that are provided to employees by their employers. The employer will determine a set amount of the employee’s paycheck that will directly go into this account. What makes these accounts so beneficial is that all the money that’s in these accounts are completely tax-free, unlike the rest of the money that you earn. However, this money can only be used in certain areas, such as those in medical, visual, and dental fields.
Why Is This So Important Now?
We’re bringing this up now because you only have a year to spend any of the money in a flex spending account; you’ll unfortunately forfeit the right to any of your money that’s still in the account when the year is up. The deadline for using this money is typically at the end of the year, which we’re quickly approaching. This makes it a perfect time to schedule any important appointments you may need while you still have access to some extra money.
Schedule An Appointment Before We Book Up
It’s important to note that our end-of-the-year appointments fill up quickly because many of our patients want to visit us to use their remaining flex spending account money. This is why if you’re interested in coming in before the year ends, we recommend giving us a call soon at (313) 381-8787 for our Allen Park office or (248) 304-7772 for our Southfield office. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
