Use Them or Lose Them

Posted September 20, 2016

drapptWith summer coming to an end, it’s time to start thinking about the end of the year. Now’s the best time to remind patients about using their flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) dollars before they disappear. Many arrangements don’t allow funds to be carried over into the next year.

In some cases, individuals with accounts find themselves in a position with too many funds at the end of the year, and nowhere to use them. The FSA and HSA dollars they’ve set aside can be applied towards copayments, deductibles, prescription drugs, some over-the-counter medications and many other healthcare, vision or dental costs.

Don’t let your patients lose their funds altogether. Reach them now via direct mail and email campaigns executed by the Tea Leaves Health platform to remind them of the services they need. Many systems use this time of year to promote procedures that tend to be put off, like skin tag removal, vasectomies, annual checkups with lab work, and eye surgery.
