What Medical Services Are Eligible Under FSA?

Medical Flexible Spending Accounts, commonly referred to as FSAs, allow employees to set aside income from their paychecks—pre-tax—into a sort of medical savings account; these dollars can later be used to reimburse those individuals for certain medical expenses incurred by them or by dependents over the course of the year, at a significant tax savings. Eligible medical expenses that are generally covered by medical flexible spending accounts include services that are not covered by insurance, such as co-pays, certain screenings and preventive exams, nutrition and smoking cessation plans, and much, much more.

Though traditional insurance plans do not cover these medical needs, these services and more are available at our state of the art preventive medical facility in Los Angeles. My Concierge MD provides comprehensive physical examinations with focus on preventive care, early diagnosis and wellness. Our concierge physicians treat patients holistically, and are available to provide first-rate, personalized care to their patients twenty-four hours a day.

By choosing  our Beverly Hills concierge medicine practice, patients avoid the hassles of insurance companies, HMOs, and fee-for-service models by paying a set annual retainer to gain round-the-clock access to a personal physician, available day and night for in-home or workplace visits. Immunizations, vaccinations, physicals and executive checkups, x-rays, ultrasounds, cardiac workup, cancer screening, comprehensive blood testing, IV fluids, and more can be provided at the office or in-home at the convenience of each patient.

The retainer model of concierge medicine makes determining FSA payroll deductions that much simpler. Our concierge physicians can help determine what medical services are eligible under FSA, allowing you to apply your FSA funds to a host of personalized medical expenses including on-call medical services, diagnostic testing, nutrition and wellness planning, and many other services not typically covered by insurance. According to Dr. David Nazarian, Board Certified physician at My Concierge MD, “our patients find that applying their flexible spending accounts or medical saving accounts towards the fees of our retainer based medical practice is both rewarding and easy. Not only do they retain the balance remaining in their flexible spending and medical saving accounts at the end of the year, but they find themselves getting considerably more out of their healthcare.”

Our concierge medical practice provides numerous screening and preventative examinations, as well as alternative treatments often times not covered by traditional insurance. Many patients utilize their flexible spending accounts for cancer and heart screening tests, executive physical examinations, nutrition consultations and nutritional support, IV vitamin therapy, to pay for their annual concierge medicine membership and more.

The cost of healthcare in the United States is rising, at the same time that rates of preventable health conditions like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease among Americans continue to increase. Studies show that visiting one’s primary care physician regularly and taking preventive care measures to prevent diseases and injuries before they happen, rather than simply treating their symptoms, is not only a more cost-effective approach to healthcare, but one that will keep Americans healthier and living longer.

Taking measures to prevent diseases by designing personalized wellness and nutrition plans, undergoing regular Executive Physicals, and by catching risk factors and warning signs early through screenings, can both save lives and prevent patients from requiring costly hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and urgent care center fees. Preventive care is the single most important step we can take to protect our health, yet many diagnostic exams and preventive screenings are not covered by insurance companies.

Since the mid-1990s, concierge medical practices have begun stepping in to provide these critical preventive care services.  My Concierge MD provides fee for service care in addition to a retainer fee model and direct access to your own  personal physician. This physician will provide comprehensive care and meaningful preventive services like Executive Physicals and diagnostic tests—ones on which traditional medical practices tend not to focus.

Because concierge practices like My Concierge MD charge a one-time annual membership retainer to cover all non-emergency health needs, a concierge membership is an ideal way for making the most of your flexible spending account as offered by many employers. Employees enrolled in FSAs determine the amount of pre-tax earnings to set aside from each paycheck, and can then use that money to cover medical costs. Concierge memberships provide predictable annual costs, ensuring that no unused FSA dollars are lost at the end of the year, and provide a significant tax savings—all while improving health through preventive care and round-the-clock access to Board Certified physicians.
