Milwaukee, WI November  17, 2020 — HSA Bank, a division of Webster Bank, N.A., today announced a new partnership with MedPut to provide an exclusive ground-breaking benefit solution for employees that will help ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by healthcare expenses.

MedPut is an innovative employee benefit that makes healthcare expenses more manageable for employees. By paying healthcare expenses upfront on employees’ behalf, MedPut helps the employee spread the expense out via payroll deductions over time. MedPut can also help lower healthcare costs for users by attempting to negotiate the amount owed and sharing the savings with the employee if successful.

Through the new partnership with MedPut, HSA Bank gives employees the option to pay for healthcare expenses with their Health Savings Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), or Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA), resulting in maximized tax savings.

"We’re excited to debut our new partnership with MedPut," said Chad Wilkins, President of HSA Bank. "Together, we'll be able to deliver greater peace of mind and ease the burden of healthcare expenses for our customers."

"MedPut’s interest-free payment plan and bill negotiation service empowers consumers to get treatment when they need it, without worrying about the immediate cost," said Harsha Puvvada, Co-Founder of MedPut. "This encourages employees to appropriately seek care and reduce overall healthcare spend, while increasing HSA contributions, which also helps employers with payroll tax savings over time."
