Sheboygan, WI (PRWEB) February 11, 2011
Trotter Wellness® announced today it has partnered with HSA Bank® to create a fully integrated Health Savings Account (HSA) and wellness solution that will reduce health care costs for organizations nationwide.
Under this agreement, HSA Bank will provide HSA administrative services for individuals that have an HSA-compatible health plan option and participate in a Trotter Wellness® program. Also under the agreement, Trotter Wellness' complete suite of health risk assessments, Health Coaching, programmatic interventions, health information and decision making tools will be made available to current HSA Bank clients that do not already have a health and wellness program in place.
"HSAs naturally fit with health and wellness plans because prevention and better disease management lowers health care insurance costs for employers and employees alike," said Kirk Hoewisch, president of HSA Bank®. "Numerous reports state that a $1 investment in wellness programs provides returns ranging from $3 to $5, so by offering an integrated health and wellness solution we have added great value for our employers and account holders."
Health Savings Accounts are tax favored savings vehicles that roll over year-to-year, which allow account holders to build funds to pay for medical expenses now and into the future. The integration of a health and wellness program assists HSA account holders with living healthier lifestyles, which often reduces the account holder's need to seek medical care.
"HSAs make employees more accountable with their health care expenditures," said Patrick Trotter, president of Trotter Wellness®. "The costs of their doctor visits are impacting the balance of their Health Savings Account, and learning how to live a healthier lifestyle will allow employees to keep more of their money."
