Can I use my FSA or HSA?
Some of our fees are reimbursable. This is one smart method of paying for your health care needs with pre-tax dollars. The retainer fee is not defined as a medical expense but there is lobbying by the American Academy of Private Physicians to be able to deduct these expenses. Please see your tax or financial advisor for additional information for your individual situation.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) are employer defined. We always refer our patients back to their employer to be sure that medical services are eligible under their particular FSA.
