Using your HSA/FSA
Why is Sakara eligible?
Sakara offers meal plans that focus on whole, plant-based foods, which are known to have numerous health benefits. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins can contribute to better heart health, improved blood sugar levels, and weight management. These factors are crucial in preventing and managing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Additionally, such a diet can help reduce inflammation in the body, which is a key component in many chronic conditions.
Furthermore, Sakara's emphasis on organic, nutrient-dense ingredients can support overall wellness. Nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants play vital roles in maintaining immune function, promoting cellular health, and reducing the risk of chronic disease. By providing balanced, nutrient-rich meals, Sakara could help individuals meet their dietary needs while also supporting long-term health.
Qualified customers may be able to reimburse their Sakara meal plan expenses with HSA/FSA dollars. This option can lead to an average savings of 30%, making Sakara's meal plans more affordable. For those with HSA/FSA accounts, the Truemed process could facilitate the largest possible discount, enhancing access to Sakara's health-focused meal offerings.
Is Sakara eligible for HSA/FSA spending?
Sakara Life's products and services' eligibility for Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) spending depends on the specific guidelines of your HSA or FSA plan and the nature of the expenses. In such cases, a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) might be required to justify the cost as a medical necessity.
