Health Savings Account

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a type of savings account that lets you set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for qualified medical expenses. By using untaxed dollars in a Health Savings Account to pay for deductibles, copayments, coinsurance, and some other expenses, you may be able to lower your overall health care cost. HSA funds generally may not be used to pay premiums.

Flexible Spending Accounts

If you have a health plan through a job, you can use a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for copayments, deductibles, some drugs, and some other health care costs. Using an FSA can reduce your taxes. Employers may make contributions to your FSA, but aren't required to. Ask your employer for more information.

WHAT IS 20/20 VISION?

Having 20/20 vision means you have normal vision. To see 20/20 implies that what you can see at 20 feet is exactly what normal people can see at 20 feet. If, for example, you could read a line on the eye chart at 20 feet, but a person with normal vision could only read it from 15 feet, then you'd be diagnosed with a 20/15 vision.

In the end, the number we consider "normal" is a bit arbitary. Some individuals naturally see better than 20/20 - others don't.
