ONE NUMBER. ONE WEBSITE. ONE APP with our medical and spending accountOctober 15, 2019
Anthem’s plan includes access to a Health Savings Account (HSA) to manage and pay for your care.
Wouldn’t it be nice if your health plan was easy to use, access and understand? Your HSA plan gives you everything you need in a single, simple plan with just one debit card, website, phone number and mobile app. An HSA can help you pay for health care expenses including prescriptions. Plus, you can claim your HSA contributions as tax deductions, earn interest on your money and roll over the year-end balance.
- A debit card for your account. So it’s easy to pay your out-of-pocket expenses for care.
- One website for your benefits and spending account. You can:
- Check your HSA balance. Look for doctors, hospitals, facilities and other health care professionals.
- Review your claims, find out if you owe anything for care and pay your balance directly from your HSA online.
- See your benefit information, including deductible and out-of-pocket. Estimate the cost of care before you see a doctor.
- One mobile app to download and use when you’re on the go. With the Sydney app, you can:
- See all of your account and claims information.
- Take a photo of a receipt and upload it for reimbursement.
- Manage and send payments from your HSA.
- Find care wherever you are, 24/7.
- One customer service phone number to call if you have questions about your plan or account.
