yes, that is the way to do it, I miss our FSA, my wife lost it when she went to part time. Her employer paid it too, she didn't even have to put money in it, $250/month.

Yep! Justine's employer just did the same thing for 2010 for the first time. It was a lot too. $600 I think?

I do get employee discount though, 20%.

That's kick . I wish I got that kind of . I don't anything, at all. If I want it, I have to pay full price out of pocket. Insurance for just me alone would be over $500/month if I went through my employer. I am so ready to be done with this contractor bull .

That sucks. Better stay healthy! That would never work for Justine. lol She's an old timer. Cabinet full of prescriptions just for her. Haha!
I found out I do have great insurance atm. I paid out-of-pocket for my in-grown toenail BS, but now I have a co-pay of $22. I did "waste" about $300 though.

FSA is where it's at for anything medical. Doc told me I couldn't get lasik but PRK is option and will likely happen next year.

It's all good. I got insurance, just not through my job.

Worn contacts my whole riding career. If you're getting that much wind in your helmet maybe its time for an upgrade. Wearing clear safetly glasses would add another layer of protection if wearing contact lenses.

Same here. I have terrible sensitivity to sunlight. To the point where I can't function without my sunglasses if it's bright out. I seriously can't drive without my sunglasses on a sunny day.

^^^same here man. People tell me I am a puss, but my eyes start to water vigorously if I don't have my shades! I wear them late into the evening, even when people are turning on their headlights at night.
