Waltham, MA — October 2, 2019 — Alegeus, the market leader in consumer-directed healthcare (CDH) solutions, today announced that the company will not only join the industry in support of National HSA Awareness Day on October 15, but will celebrate the full month of October to educate consumers on the value of health savings accounts (HSAs). This month will be dedicated to bringing public awareness around the power of HSAs and their ability to empower consumers to take control of their healthcare spending and saving.
When a consumer-directed health plan is paired with a tax-advantaged HSA, they offer huge savings to employers and their employees. Yet, HSAs are routinely underutilized and underfunded, translating into billions of dollars in lost tax savings each year.
Kicking off the month of celebration, Alegeus has launched an educational consumer website, www.wealthcare.com, that assembles a collection of resources to help consumers navigate their health and benefit decisions. To further its mission and dedication to empowering consumers across the country to achieve better health and wealth, activities throughout the month will include:
“We are excited to rally alongside industry peers to advance consumerism in healthcare,” said Steven Auerbach, Alegeus CEO. “With open enrollment right around the corner, there is no better time for consumers to become more aware of the value that health savings accounts can deliver.”
