We put $3750 in our FSA this year.....and as of this morning, we had $23 left before it is gone. Considering we are at the end of October.....we did ok. Not great, but not horrid. In the past we put more in the account (and we have always used it). I was just hoping that this year we would be able to cut back on some of the expenses.....guess not!
More to the point....we have already spent $3750 out of pocket on medical....not including over the counter medication and supplies (I have no idea how much we have already spent on that!!). This is co-pays at the doctor and therapists, dentist, and feeding supplies.
I still need to get contacts and new glasses. G-man has a dentist appointment in 2 weeks. And we have our weekly occupational therapy. So none of that will be reimbursed. Oh well.
Right now....I am leaning toward $4000 for next year. That breaks down to about $153 a paycheck ($9 more than now). At least we get a small tax break putting aside pre-tax. We won't have enough to claim on our taxes (you know....that 7.5% of your adjusted gross.....), so at least it is something.
Anyone else running dry on their FSA? If you do have a FSA, how much do you put aside?
