7 More Ways to Save on Your Medical Costs
We all want to save lots of money on our medical expenses – be it on health insurance premiums, lab tests, or prescription drugs. Did you know that as a client of HSA for America, these potential savings of up to 70% off on your healthcare costs are within your reach?
If you aren’t aware of these benefits that we offer or you somehow just forgot, below is a quick list of benefits for which you qualify, and how to take advantage of them.
The cost of prescribed medications can be an eye-opener, but pricing varies depending on where you buy. Savvy shoppers can save by comparison shopping but HSA for America also provides two additional ways to save with prescription discount programs accepted at pharmacies nationwide.
Like prescription drugs, the price of lab fees can be an unwelcome surprise. The good news is that the cost of services like blood work can be reduced by as much as 80 percent. Just order your test online and then visit a participating lab for your tests. It’s convenient and saves money too, especially if you haven’t yet met your deductible.
It’d be great to enroll in a health plan that never changes, but unfortunately that plan doesn’t exist. Rates change and your needs might have changed as well. HSA for America offers a free Comprehensive Policy Review every year so you can be assured the plan you choose is still the right plan for you. It’s a great chance to learn about other money- saving options too.
Large insurers and employers have entire departments to negotiate pricing for health care services. The general public often pays full retail price, but we partnered with South Florida Utilization Review (SFUR) to help negotiate your medical bills for you — potentially saving you lots of money and certainly some stress. If SFUR’s negotiation team can negotiate a reduced amount, you keep a percentage of the savings. If the price is already as low as it can go, you pay nothing for the service.
An MRI, CT Scan, or Ultrasound can be a pricey experience — unless you have the HSA for America Imaging Discount Card. With the free discount card, savings of 20 percent to 70 percent on common services are available. You can download the card instantly — so you don’t have to wait for the mail. Just call the 800 number on your discount card and schedule your exam.
Your health care options aren’t limited to the U.S. Dental work or expensive surgeries — including cosmetic surgery — that can break the bank here in the States can be safely performed outside the country for a fraction of the cost.
HSA for America partners with PlacidWay, a health/wellness tourism provider, to connect you with certified surgeons and health care providers in other countries.
PlacidWay can help you find top-quality medical care in the location of your choice — with no fees for the concierge service. With savings of up to 80 percent, you can see a new part of the world and come back healthier. Let the savings pay for your airfare — and the beautiful scenery.
Save with top merchants like Amazon, Travelocity, and more. HSA for America members are eligible for a free and no-strings-attached rebate program that earns you cash back when you make purchases. The cash-back money goes right into your HSA, so you can build your health savings — just by buying things you’d normally buy.
Our Membership Benefits page shows all the additional benefits and services that are available to you. These free money-saving tools is our way of saying “thanks” for placing your trust in HSA for America.
