FlexMinder Announces Partnership with Flex-Plan Services

SEATTLE (October 31, 2012) FlexMinder is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Flex-Plan Services, Inc. (FPS) to provide consumers with a service that makes it easy for them to save 25-40% on their “out of pocket” health care expenses. Flex-Plan will brand this new service Flexi-Crawler and roll it out to their 2,000 employers (80,000 employees) in November, 2012.

 

“We partnered with FlexMinder to offer our participants a simple way to manage their Flexible Spending Accounts. Flexi-Crawler will identify out-of-pocket expenses associated with their insurance (deductible, co-pay or co-insurance) and prepare the claims and required documentation to submit for reimbursement – automatically – eliminating the work related to getting reimbursed,” said Hillarie Aitken, partner of Flex-Plan Services, Inc. “Flexi-Crawler gathers and prepares carrier EOB data directly, making the reimbursement process easier and more efficient for everyone involved.”
FlexMinder is an Enterprise SaaS company that aggregates an individual’s healthcare information from multiple sources and automates the reimbursement process for their FSA healthcare claims. Consumers can view all of their healthcare related claim information through a single portal.

“We are proud of our partnership with Flex-Plan, a company known for innovation in their quest to deliver friendly and efficient customer service. We are excited about the prospect of assisting Flex-Plan to deliver a service, which will save their FSA participants time and money (enough to buy a new iPad every year) by eliminating the manual claim submission process.. This will make life easier for close to 100,000 people.” adds Lowell Ricklefs, CEO of FlexMinder.

FSA’s allow employees to save money by putting pretax dollars (up to $2,500 for healthcare and $5,000 for childcare) aside to be spent on qualified items such as child care, insurance deductibles, co-pays at the doctor, prescription drugs, eyeglasses, orthodontic braces and even Band-Aids and contact lens solutions.

For Third Party Administrators (TPAs) FlexMinder provides many direct benefits:

  • Reduce claim handling costs by up to 50%
  • Eliminate submission errors
  • Increases participation rates
  • Increase profitability

FlexMinder can reduce transactional costs in a $10B industry by up to 50% for third party administrators by automating the reimbursement process for healthcare flexible spending accounts.
