Putting Off the Dentist, Waiting for FSA

April 27th, 2009 at 06:40 pm

My husband and I are each scheduled to see the dentist in May for a total estimated out of pocket expense of about $600. I just realized last night that it should all be eligible to be covered by our FSA. Unfortunately we have used all of it for this year, but since we're on a fiscal year, it will start again July 1. I plan on calling the dentist tomorrow to reshedule our appointments for July. Whew. That's an awesome discovery, because essentially, that gives us $600 more in our budget than planned since we have don't see the FSA money anyway. Also, I don't have to worry about running out of FSA money next year since we won't be having a baby next year, but are keeping our amount the same. Yeah! This all makes me happy and it's so nice to FINALLY have good news!

    Oh that's great that you don't have to wait until January! I was "lucky" that my tooth broke just after Thanksgiving. I wasn't in pain and with all the holiday things going on, it was easy to get in there January 5th. Smile

    lizajame and dmontngrey, you're right. I feel very lucky! We're also lucky that neither of us have pressing issues anymore (not that my root canal and crown are done). These dentist appointments were to correct isses that need to be done, but it will be ok to put them off too.
