USE Flexible Spending Account (FSA) dollars For Costa RX Glasses


From Costa:

As the last remaining days of 2015 loom large ahead, many of us might be making our lists and checking them twice to try and make sure everything gets done before the end of the year.

But don’t let the year expire without using your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) dollars. Often sponsored as part of a corporate benefits package, an FSA plan allows employees to contribute pre-tax dollars to pay for out-of-pocket health care expenses — including deductibles, copayments and other qualified medical, dental or vision expenses not covered by the individual’s health insurance plan. The plans are often set up as “use it or lose it,” meaning any left over funds would default back to the employer after Dec. 31.

You might already know prescription eyeglasses are covered as an FSA expense, but did you know prescription sunglasses, like the premium polarized styles Costa makes, are also included as a qualifying benefit?

Costa’s prescription sunglasses help protect your eyes from

harmful reflected glare and UV rays, while Costa’s 580 lens technology selectively filters out harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light. Filtering yellow light enhances reds, blues and greens, and produces better contrast and definition while reducing glare and eye fatigue. Absorbing high-energy blue light cuts haze, producing greater visual clarity and sharpness.

All of Costa’s prescription sunglasses are custom made in its state-of-the-art optical lab in its Daytona Beach, Fla. headquarters location. Each pair comes with a two-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects.

Don’t let 2015 run out without checking your FSA benefit level. Then visit your local authorized Costa optical retailer to find the prescription sunglasses that are right for you.

For Costa, conservation is all about sustainable fishing. Many fisheries that should be vibrant and healthy are all but devoid of native fish because they have fallen victim to poor fishing practices, unregulated development, lack of watershed protection or all of the above. Costa works with partners around the world to help increase awareness and influence policy so that both the fish and fishermen of tomorrow will have healthy waters to enjoy. Costa encourages others to help in any way they can.
