How can I use my Health Savings Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), or employee wellness benefits to pay for Balance365?
If your doctor recommends nutrition changes and/or weight loss for a specific condition, which may include but not limited to, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, pre-diabetes, or arthritis the United States government may allow you to use funds from your pre-tax accounts such as your FSA or HSA to pay for your Balance365 Coaching membership or Fat Loss Foundations purchase. Additionally, some employers may offer a stipend for various wellness services that may cover your Balance365 membership. Claim processes and eligibility vary by provider. To determine your eligibility, we recommend you carefully review the following steps:
- Contact your HSA, FSA Benefit Specialist, or HR Administrator to find out if you are eligible to use your FSA/HSA card or can be reimbursed for Balance365 Coaching
- You may be asked to obtain a letter of medical necessity from your doctor. This form may be provided by your account vendor or HR department. You can find a link to our Balance365 sample form here. Please note, the letter of medical necessity is only for your records. Balance365 does not require one.
- Check out using your FSA/HSA Card. Balance365 accepts FSA/HSA cards but can not guarantee a card will not be declined. Card issuers are still at liberty to authorize or decline any payment as they would with any other type of credit card.
- Print and submit your receipts for Balance365 as requested by your provider/vendor
Please note that Balance365 does not provide medical or tax advice. This is intended for informational purposes only. You should consult your medical doctor and/or account provider for professional information regarding your eligibility and benefits. If you use an HSA/FSA card for your method of payment, you acknowledge that you are responsible for determining whether this purchase will be a qualified medical expense, for submitting any required information to the IRS, and for any penalties you may receive as a result.
