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:

  1. 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 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
