What Will WageWorks Do For You?
To Your Health
What WageWorks gives your employer that is in return passed along to you is savings. Working with a consumer directed health plan gives the employees many options to seek out the best health insurance with a spending account for out-of-pocket expenses. Consumers are still able to choose the individual health insurance they want, but with a higher deductible, this high deductible is offset by the flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA). This money is garnered as pre-tax funds loaded onto a prepaid card, whether it be a Visa card or prepaid MasterCard. It is Wage Works objective to make sure the employee is making the best informed decisions about their healthcare and the health of their family. Although it is up to your employer to decide if certain services like acupuncture, physical therapy, nutrition programs, or chiropractor visits will be covered, WageWorks.com works with you to make sure you understand how to best use your health insurance and FSA or HSA accounts.
