WEX, a financial technology service provider, announced its health division will host a free live-streamed panel discussion aimed at educating Americans on the uses, benefits and tax advantages of health savings accounts (HSAs).
The discussion will take place at 3 p.m. EST on National Health Savings Account Awareness Day (HSA Day), Tuesday, October 15. Financial expert and 2019 HSA Day education ambassador Jean Chatzky will moderate the panel. WEX’s national partners, including providers, employers, financial institutions, fintechs and more, will livestream the panel discussion to their audiences.
The live-streamed panel discussion will take an in-depth look at how HSAs can be used for everyday health care expenses such as doctor visits, co-pays, prescriptions and even orthodontia, as well as a long-term retirement plan and safety net. A variety of HSA knowledge leaders will comprise the panel along with Chatzky.
“The majority of Americans who can take advantage of an HSA aren’t doing so, and we want to help change that,” says Robert Deshaies, president, Health, WEX. “As a spending account that offers a tax benefit—and oftentimes an employer match—an HSA is a tremendously powerful way to help manage health care-related expenses.”WEX announced the launch of its new HSA awareness initiative earlier this year.
