Appointment in Calendar Atlanta GA It’s December already! Where did the year go? It seems like just yesterday we were putting the kids on the school buses at the end of the summer! Sometimes time slips away without us noticing. The same thing can happen with your health benefits.

Did you realize that you might have money that could slip away when December 31, 2018 rolls around as well? If you have an FSA, this is a tax-advantaged account that allows you to save money to pay for qualified medical expenses.

It’s important to take the time to evaluate your FSA benefits before the end of the year. Some employees offer grace periods or even allotted carry over amounts. However, it is up to your employer to decide if you can keep unused funds or not. The best thing to do is to be clearly informed, so you don’t end up losing any of the benefits you are entitled to.

If you’ve been waiting to get the physical therapy you, your spouse or your child needs, don’t let your time or money slip away before you begin your rehabilitation process. Be sure to take advantage of the days remaining in December to maximize the amount of your health benefits and FSA.

Our professionals at Sovereign Rehabilitation look forward to seeing you in our office before the end of 2018. Call and see how “we make life feel better.” Contact us today so we can get you scheduled for an appointment.
