Losing the FSA bet...|
I was worried that since we barely had enough medical expenses to cover the amount I set aside for the Flexible Spending Account in 2005.
I just collected our receipts for prescriptions and insurance claim forms with patient amounts due. I hadn't even gotten to the dental receipts yet.
I'm already over the allocation I made for this year by nearly double! Since we used the debit card until we ran up to the set-aside amount, I knew we had gotten there. For all the work of collecting this stuff, I'm going to get a check for $1.62, as that's what is left "disbursable" on the account. On the plus side, this is completely off my plate now, and I won't have to worry about frantically collecting receipts before the "use it or lose it" deadline in March.
For compeleteness, I filed the Dependent Care Spending Account reimbursement, too, so we should get that money back soon, too.

We always get new glasses in December if we haven't used all our money. Next year - wisdom teeth surgery for Sol and maybe braces for me. Argh!
