Fort Lauderdale, FL, May 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- a new generation healthcare marketplace platform designed to address the growing need of self-pay and high deductible consumers for greater transparency and price competition in their healthcare costs, is excited to announce that it is now allowing consumers to use their for qualified purchases. The online healthcare platform makes scheduling an appointment for specific healthcare services as simple and easy as booking a flight or hotel. With the acceptance of FSAs and HSAs, MediXall.com aims to reduce the burden of healthcare spending for customers and improve their overall shopping experience.
FSAs and HSAs allow people with health insurance to set aside portions of their salaries before taxes to pay for medical expenses such as imaging services, prescription medicines, and other healthcare services that would have been paid for out-of-pocket. Consumers will now be able to use these accounts to pay when scheduling appointments for these types of services through MediXall.com.
High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP), which typically offer FSA or HSA programs, make up almost half of all employer-based health coverage and nearly all individual policies. HDHPs are shifting the financial burden of out-of-pocket medical expenses towards individuals, forcing them to take a closer look at their healthcare spending. These plans are driving the healthcare consumerism movement and putting a spotlight on FSA and HSA payment options where consumers can use pre-tax contributions. In response to the increasing adoption of HDHPs with FSA/HSA programs, MediXall.com saw an opportunity to help consumers decrease their healthcare costs.
“MediXall.com is part of a limited number of select online marketplaces currently accepting FSA and HSA debit cards, providing consumers a convenient way to purchase eligible healthcare services while shopping online,” said Michael Swartz, President of MediXall.com. “Customers now have the flexibility to use FSA/HSA cards on a wide range of eligible healthcare purchases, eliminating the need to pay out-of-pocket or submit receipts for reimbursement.”
MediXall.com allows consumers to use their smartphones, tablets or computers to search for healthcare providers and related service providers. Users enjoy a premium shopping experience with full price transparency at highly competitive prices every day.
