Imagine walking around with the power of your HSA in your pocket. Sounds a little too Tony Stark even in this ever-increasing technological world. Combing the power of the 100% online Lively HSA and a Lively brand HSA debit card, you have just that, a fully accessible and mobile HSA.
You might already know that Lively is 100% paperless and you can quickly manage your HSA online, from transfers to receipt uploads to investments, it’s all quick and easy. But if you actually want to use your HSA, your debit card becomes your most important tool.
HSA Debit Card
An HSA debit card makes using your HSA funds for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses convenient and easy. Just swipe your card and get on with your day. Lively will upload the transaction for you into your online dashboard. It could not be easier to add your HSA debit card to your wallet so you can use it whenever and wherever you need it. If you need a refresher, here is a list of eligible HSA expenses. An HSA debit card is the perfect way to put the tax-savings power of an HSA to work for you.
Debit Card Fees
We do want to let you know that many traditional HSA platforms can charge you a fee to use your HSA debit card. Please review your provider pricing to understand if this applies to you. However, if you are a Lively HSA user, please know we never nickel and dime our customers so you need not worry, there is no fee to use your Lively branded HSA debit card.
I forgot my HSA Debit Card, what can I do?
Don’t worry! We planned for this because we have had it happen to us, more than a few times. You can upload any receipts, bills, etc. to the Lively dashboard. Once you connect your bank account, that money will be transferred from your Lively HSA to your personal bank account within 2-3 days. It’s your money, you should be able to get it when you need it. We would be remiss to mention you can add a dependent card at no cost (up to 3) in case you want to extend this power and convenience to other family members on your HSA plan.
