NEW YORK—Americans who are enrolled in flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) can now use these tax-free health care funds to pay for monitoring devices that deliver reassurance and safety. Thanks to a new partnership between Health-E Commerce and Medical Guardian, individuals and families can receive a discount on select Medical Guardian devices and one year of membership when shopping on FSA Store and HSA Store.
“This partnership demonstrates the flexibility of HSAs and FSAs and underscores the fact that eligibility really does support all ages and stages of life,” said Susan Elliott-Bocassi, senior vice president of operations for Health-E Commerce. “We’re proud of this partnership with Medical Guardian because it fulfills our mission of simplifying tax-free health care accounts and supporting the overall well-being of consumers. By making such high-quality safety devices available at a discounted price, we are helping account holders stretch their health care dollars and improve the quality of life for themselves and their loved ones.”
Medical Guardian’s personal emergency response systems offer a variety of devices for each lifestyle, all equipped with 24/7 US-based monitoring. The FSA Store and HSA store eligible discount includes the popular Home 2.0 and the Mini Guardian. The Home 2.0 provides comprehensive home protection with a base station and an interchangeable help button that is wearable as a wristband or a necklace. Meanwhile, the Mini Guardian is perfect for seniors on the go, with a discreet help button available in multiple colors, wearable on a belt clip or lanyard.
“Our devices and reliable monitoring service provide immediate assistance for any fall or health emergency,” said Geoff Gross, founder and CEO of Medical Guardian. “We are determined to make our life-saving devices accessible to all those in need of protection. That's why we're thrilled to be partnering with Health-E Commerce, expanding the reach of our protection to individuals and families covered by FSAs and HSAs, and empowering them to live confidently and independently."
