Initial HSA Marketplace partners include a variety of recognized industry leaders and up-and-coming online brands such as Simple Contacts, Plushcare, ZendyHealth, HSA Store, Audicus, Jonas Paul Eyewear, Parasail, and Candid. The selection of these partners showcases the wide range of HSA-eligible expenses and better consumer options including:

General expenses Primary care Vision Dental

“The growing cost of medical procedures means finding the most cost-effective dental and health procedures is a requirement for many Americans. Lively’s HSA Marketplace extends our belief in affordable prices without sacrificing quality,” said Vish Banthia, Founder & CEO of ZendyHealth. ZendyHealth is a provider of virtual care and price shopping consumerism tools.

HSA account holders spent over $22.5 billion on qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses in 2017, but are frequently challenged to use their funds on the products and services they want and need. With this in mind, the Marketplace connects Lively’s account holders to cost-effective and convenient qualified medical expense products and services. They get exclusive healthcare discounts and save time.

Lively’s HSA Marketplace combines innovative, cost-effective solutions with a beautifully designed and simple to use interface - at no cost to its account holders. The result is further expansion of the modern HSA experience.

“Having personally been forced to waste time and money on healthcare experiences, we wanted to give our account holders further cost controls on healthcare expenses and let them easily purchase products they actually want. Our goal is to continuously bridge the gap of how users save and spend their HSA dollars and Lively’s HSA Marketplace is a clear step in that direction,” said Alex Cyriac, Co-Founder & CEO of Lively.
