Boston, MA — March 20, 2018 — Alegeus, the market leader in consumer directed healthcare (CDH) solutions, today announced they have partnered with ZendyHealth to help consumers better manage their healthcare finances by providing cost transparency and access to local providers for medical and dental procedures.
Today, consumers can access ZendyHealth’s extensive network of pre-screened and certified providers through the Alegeus virtual marketplace, an online consumer portal that curates a wide range of HSA (health savings account) and FSA (flexible spending account) eligible products and services for purchase using tax-advantaged benefit account dollars. Once consumers pick their price or their preferred provider for a service or procedure, ZendyHealth identifies available appointments and connects the consumer directly to the provider.
“We hope the transparency and empowerment this offering brings will open new avenues for consumers to receive the best quality healthcare for the dollars they spend,” said Dr. Vish Banthia, Founder, ZendyHealth. “By understanding all costs up-front, consumers are empowered to make smarter purchasing decisions that maximize their healthcare dollars.”
“Our clients look to us for more than technology – we are their trusted partner to help engage and educate healthcare consumers,” said Steven Auerbach, CEO, Alegeus. “Without meaningful consumer engagement, our clients will not be able to fully unlock the tremendous potential of the CDH market opportunity. We have a long history of delivering industry-leading engagement capabilities through our best-in-class online consumer portal, and adding these expanded direct-to-consumer engagement capabilities is the next frontier.”
