16 Nov Use Your FSA for Skin Checks
As the New Year approaches, people start thinking about holiday plans, visiting loved ones—and maximizing their FSA and HSA accounts. Spectrum Dermatology works with your insurance as well as FSA and HSA accounts. Although some of these accounts require you to complete all medical appointments by the end of the year, the IRS does allow for an extension until March 15 for many FSA accounts. Still, it’s essential to make the most of these accounts before that final deadline because appointments book up quickly this time of year.
Many people think of FSA accounts as strictly for medical procedures with an MD or GP. However, FSA accounts can also be applied to a number of dermatological procedures including skin checks. These annual exams are a critical part of detecting skin cancer early. However, mole checks and skin cancer treatments are just one aspect of dermatological services covered by FSA accounts.
Dermatologists address both medical and cosmetic skin issues. This can include severe acne, psoriasis, rosacea, and a wide range of additional skin disorders. Many times, skin issues are medical disorders that also present as cosmetic concerns. However, for some insurance policies, there is a gray area when it comes to dermatology services. Fortunately, FSA and HSA accounts allow for more flexibility. Spectrum Dermatology will always try to bill your FSA account if you prefer, or you can request a reimbursement.
Dermatology services covered with an FSA account can vary based on the type of account. If you have any questions regarding services, check with your FSA provider first.
