Microsoft Subscribers (through Premera):  We know that you recently experienced a transition to a new plan the first of this year and that the transition has been challenging for some.  We want you to know that we are here to help!  As you may or may not be aware, your HSA card is a gateway to accessing services, supplies and supplements that you previously would have paid for out of your own pocket.  DID YOU KNOW…The IRS establishes what is and what is not a qualifying expense for use with your HSA card.  You can use your benefit card to pay for not only traditional office visits, but acupuncture services and nutritional supplements (when prescribed for a specific medical condition that has been diagnosed by a physician) as well!

 

Even if you use up the balance on your HSA card, we’re still affordable!!  A typical office visit will cost you about $7.85 to $11.64 based on the cost-share program.  (Amount is calculated using the 10% cost-share based on Premera’s current allowed amount for a typical office visit.)

 

In addition, your plan will pay 100% of a preventive care visit (office visit portion, only); no need to use your HSA card!  Getting preventive care each year to detect potential health issues before they become serious works in your favor, so take advantage of this benefit and call our office to schedule your yearly physical.
