LASIK Eye Surgery Financing
How Much Does LASIK Cost in Portland?
When seeking a LASIK surgeon, many people search for terms like “cost of LASIK” or “cheapest LASIK.” We believe that LASIK technology, experience, the skill of your LASIK surgeon, alongside pre and post-operative care, are just as important as the cost of LASIK.
LASIK eye surgery is a medical procedure performed by board-certified ophthalmologists. Like any other procedure you might inquire about regarding your health, the cost is a significant concern. We believe that treatment must be enhanced by education and innovation to achieve the best possible results. In determining whether LASIK is best for you, you should prioritize quality care and visual outcomes.
Does Insurance Cover LASIK?
Even though we know LASIK is a life-changing and sometimes necessary procedure for our patients, insurance companies typically do not cover LASIK or any other vision correction procedures as they are considered elective procedures. We would recommend reviewing the outline of benefits for your health insurance, as some employers offer vision plans that, in some cases, will cover LASIK.
What Are Affordable LASIK Options?
We accept all standard forms of payment (cash, checks, credit cards). We work alongside a variety of financing companies to provide payment options to fit most budgets. We can accept Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) as well. Furthermore, LASIK and other laser vision correction procedures are tax-deductible in most cases.
Can Medical Savings Accounts Help Pay for LASIK?
FSAs and HSAs (Health Savings Accounts or Flexible Spending Accounts) are standard policies sponsored by employers. These plans typically cover LASIK, among other vision correction procedures. In exchange for a Vision Correction Procedure, such as LASIK, patients participating in either a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account can set aside tax-free funds from their earnings. An FSA allows you to contribute up to $2,750 per year.
Is LASIK Tax Deductible?
Vision Correction Surgery, like LASIK, is deemed a tax-deductible medical expense by the IRS. If you have a procedure done, you may be able to deduct that amount from your income tax. The fees we charge are transparent, affordable, and inclusive. Our expertise and technology assure each patient’s outcome.
