Firms Partner to Provide Health Care Cost Transparency

The partnership between Alegeus and ZendyHealth aims to help employees make smarter decisions to manage health care costs.

Alegeus, provider of consumer-directed health care (CDH) solutions, has partnered with ZendyHealth to help consumers better manage their health care finances by providing cost transparency and access to local providers for medical and dental procedures.

Consumers can access ZendyHealth’s 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 health care for the dollars they spend,” says Dr. Vish Banthia, founder, ZendyHealth. “By understanding all costs up-front, consumers are empowered to make smarter purchasing decisions that maximize their health care dollars.”

“Our clients look to us for more than technology—we are their trusted partner to help engage and educate health care consumers,” says 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.”
