I hope I post this in the right section. If not please move it. I have been out of work of for over a year and have had to pay for my visits and subutex with cash............No insurance. As we know many doctors do not take insurance only cash. I finally after 8 interviews got a job starting Jan 5, 2013. I get insurance benefits in 30 days. I am going to get $5000 in the Flexible Spending Account........one.........it is tax free so worth about $7500 and on a credit card. Once you get the card the full $5000 is available. You pay for your visit and and your prescription and then fax in your receipt and you get reimbursed. If you sign up for direct deposit it goes straigt in your acccount within a week of submitting. Please do this if you can.............it will save you money in taxes plus you get it back............I cant wait to start saving money and getting reimbursed........if you have any questions just ask or PM me...................Good Luck.

Jim

[size=12]Jim, this is such an excellent tip! Our flex saving account works a little bit differently, but we still utilize it every year. We put $1500 into my husband's flex spending account every year through pre-tax paycheck withdrawals. Our insurance is set up so that we get $2500 in a health spending account. Once we go through that (which we almost always do) we have a $1500 out of pocket deductible before insurance starts paying for 85% of any medical bill. During our out of pocket deduction, we reimburse ourselves for any medical expenses from the flex account. It works out very well.

Thanks for the reminder!

Amy
