Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) can be used to pay for integrative treatments, including bodywork, acupuncture, counseling, nutrition, and mindfulness, as long as your physician recommends it with a written prescription. At Ha.Lé, we deeply believe in the effectiveness of our treatments. We are very excited to see integrative care covered as the healthcare it is.
If you are in a membership with us, your Integrative Medical Consult provides what you need for your HSA. If you prefer to get a written prescription from your PCP instead, you will need to talk with them about treating a specific medical ailment. Some examples are: stress, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Explain to them that you have an HSA or FSA that you would like to use.
If you are already receiving integrative care, tell your doctor about how much it is helping you. Ha.Lé is happy write a letter for you, detailing our suggested treatment plan for that ailment. Your doctor may choose to write the prescription to match that plan or may make adjustments based on their expertise. Either way, the prescription needs to include these 3 pieces of information:
- Medical necessity: what condition you are treating
- Frequency: how many sessions per month
- Duration: how many months
Once you have your prescription, let us know what it says and then file it away with your records in case you are ever asked to back up your expense. You can pay for your sessions at Ha.Lé directly with the card or check associated with your health spending account, if you have them.
At Ha.Lé, we want you to feel good about what you are doing for your health. These HSA and FSA payment options make our treatments more accessible, which means we can be effective health care for more people, so you can get better and feel good!
