FARGO, N.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 20, 2018--
Health, a WEX Company and an award-winning healthcare financial
technology platform provider, has introduced significant new features
and functionality to its WEX
Health Cloud platform. The company’s product roadmap
investments—focused on engagement, account growth, and efficiency—are
reflected in the customization capabilities designed to help WEX Health
partners further drive consumer engagement.
On the mobile front, an enhanced message center
provides consumers with additional notifications to help manage their
accounts. Fingerprint login for Android users has also been added,
enabling consumers to log in to the WEX Health Cloud Mobile App with the
touch of their finger.
Advanced messaging options in the Consumer Portal enable partners and
consumers to create customized experiences and help consumers take
control of their financial health. The Healthcare Savings Goal meter, a
new engagement tool for consumers, helps them personalize their
healthcare savings account goal and track it against contributions.
Combined with a customizable investment education page that allows
partners to provide their own text, videos, and documents, consumers can
educate themselves on the benefits of investing health savings account
“As the market for our products becomes more sophisticated, a critical
differentiator for our partners is their ability to guide consumers to
maximize their health benefit accounts,” said Matt Dallahan, senior vice
president, strategy and product development at WEX Health.
One such partner is HSA Bank, a division of Webster Bank, N.A. The
organization recently released the HSA
Bank Health & Wealth Index℠ for 2018, a new report that explores
how today’s consumers are faring when it comes to their financial and
physical health. More than 1,000 U.S. adults were surveyed about their
health plan enrollment status, health practices, ability to pay for
health-related expenses, and level of engagement in their own health and
wealth. The results showed that 41 percent never save money for future
healthcare expenses and 35 percent never consider cost when selecting
“While the survey shows that consumers are taking a proactive approach
when it comes to their physical health, that’s not necessarily the case
with their financial health,” said Chad Wilkins, executive vice
president of Webster Bank, and head of HSA Bank. “Tools like the
Healthcare Savings Goal meter can help consumers become more engaged in
their financial health by encouraging consumers to save for
health-related expenses, which are one of the largest costs consumers
will face in retirement.”
To help its partners—industry-leading
third-party administrators, health plans, financial institutions,
exchange partners, and payroll providers—drive account growth, added
features and functionality include a new investment experience for
consumers which includes enhanced customization options for the
Investment Summary page.
The introduction of the Administrator Dashboard
brings administrators new summary and detailed dashboard information as
well as drill-down capabilities for deep analysis. Additionally, “go
green” language can now be included on certain WEX Health COBRA and
Direct Billing communications.
WEX Health Partners—who connect WEX Health to more than 300,000
employers, ultimately helping the company serve more than 25 million
consumers across the United States and Canada—will gather April 30-May 2
at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa for Partner
