Reimbursed through Flex Spending Account



Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just wanted to let your all know that it's possible to get reimbursed a portion of your surgery cost through you Flex Spending Account(FSA). I submitted all of my paperwork to FSAFEDS( My FSA Administrator). I was reimbursed $2,230 of my surgery cost within 2 days of submitting the forms I only elected to set aside $2,300 this year. I used $70 of it earlier this year, so they gave me what was left in my Flex Spending Account.

I plan on setting aside at least $1,00 of it for any future medical/dental expenses. I took all of my forms with me to Mexico, so Dr. Ponce could sign them. He signed a letter of Medial Necessity for me and another form. I got the forms from my FSA provider. I hope this helps someone.

Wow. It's cool that your employer lets you put that much into a flex spending account. I'm already close to spending the max of mine ($1,400) this year. I talked to my NUT about my FSA and Vitamins. I think as long as you have one of those letters of medical necessity, you can get the cost of those reimbursed, too. Thanks for the share! Hope you're doing well one month out!

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
