About Flex Spending and FAQ’s
Will I get an itemized invoice when I purchase my glasses from Safety Gear Pro?
Yes, an itemized invoice/receipt will emailed to you at the time of purchase. You can also request an official copy by emailing our customer service team at Sales@SafetyGearPro.com.
Are Safety Sunglasses covered by HSA and Flex Spending?
Your Flex and HSA card cover prescription lenses whether they would be used in sunglasses, regular glasses or Safety eyeglasses.
Can I use my health savings account for safety glasses?
RX Safety glasses and contacts are eligible expenses. These funds can be used for prescription safety eyewear, regardless of whether or not you have vision insurance.
Can I use Flex Spending to buy sunglasses?
Just like an FSA, you can usually use HSA dollars to purchase glasses and pay for other vision expenses like eye exams, prescription sunglasses and contacts, so check your policy.
What are some eligible expenses under FSA (Flex Spending) or HSA (Health Savings)?
Your FSA or HSA typically covers expenses like prescription drugs, doctor visits and, yes, prescription safety eyewear, too! Below you’ll find a list of items at Safetygearpro.com that are typically covered by FSA and HSA accounts:
- Eyeglasses with or without lenses (this include non RX safety eye glasses and ANSI rated frames)
- Prescription Safety Eyeglasses
- Prescription Sunglasses
- Non RX Sunglasses
How to use your FSA or HSA dollars to purchase eyewear at SafetyGearPro.com?
If you have an FSA or HSA debit card, you simply enter that card’s information at check-out, just as you would with a normal credit card. If you do not have an FSA or HSA debit card, you must make your purchase using another credit card and be reimbursed directly from your FSA or HSA provider. Reimbursement forms, along with itemized receipts and invoices, are usually required by FSA or HSA providers. An invoice/receipt will emailed to you at the time of purchase.
Do my FSA or HSA dollars expire?
Yes, they do. You must use your Flex spending FSA dollars during the same “coverage period” (i.e. calendar year) that the money was put aside. That “coverage period” is defined as one calendar year (ending on Dec. 31st). (There are some plans that offer a grace period that will allow you to use your remaining Flex Spending FSA dollars until March 15 of the following year.) Once your coverage period expires, however, all unused FSA funds will be lost.
