The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has exposed just how vital doing business virtually is. Now more than ever, we depend on being able to manage our day-to-day lives remotely online.
Many companies and organizations are struggling to adjust and adapt to the increased need for a functional digital footprint, causing strain both on the business side and the customer side in an already stressful time.
Fortunately, Bend isn’t one of those companies. We’ve been uniquely positioned as the perfect HSA partner for a virtual world since day one. No special modifications have been necessary in our HSA platform or workflows since the COVID-19 outbreak, and we’ve been able to continue to provide the same level of service and customer support seamlessly throughout this time with no interruptions or downtime. It’s something we’re proud of, and something everyone should consider when it comes to who they’re partnering with for their HSA.
Since our inception, Bend has been positioned as a leader in HSA administration in the digital age. Everything we do is streamlined and online, from account setup and enrollment, to ongoing HSA administration and everything in between.
Our all-online, paperless approach provides many benefits to individual accountholders, employees, employers and partners. These online HSA advantages are especially critical during the COVID-19 crisis, as many employers and their employees, as well as those who are self-employed, find themselves working remotely or working limited hours or in other restrictive situations.
Let’s take a quick look at just some of the advantages of Bend’s streamlined HSA solutions.
With an online HSA platform like Bend HSA, you benefit from cost savings and time savings.
On the employer side, implementation of Bend HSA is simple, completely online and takes on average only 30 minutes from start to finish. And employee enrollment isn’t just electronic—it’s automated. All you need to do is upload your employee information into the Bend HSA system. From there, we automatically send your employees emails to enroll. And from there, ongoing HSA administration is made easy through a variety of thoughtfully developed online tools and dashboards.
On the individual and employee side, enrollment is equally as simple and completely online, eliminating any need to chase paper forms. And maintaining your account after it’s set up is equally as simple and user-friendly—and all online.
The digital efficiencies Bend HSA offers save you time and money, and also provide for a better user experience and easy HSA sustainability across the board.
For individuals, employers and employees, our focus on user experience begins immediately. With Bend HSA’s unique automation process, we’re able to monitor enrollments and provide customized messaging to help throughout the process, utilizing positive reinforcement and easy-to-follow instructions. For employers, HR teams gets a huge assist with an otherwise burdensome administration process—no more HR staff time manually uploading information, chasing paper forms, printing more paper forms and other materials, dealing with physical enrollment packets and more. And by reducing the chance of errors and omissions commonly found on paper forms, Bend’s paperless enrollment process frees up employer and employee time while providing both with an easy-to-use, sustainable platform for ongoing HSA plan administration.
While time and cost savings are great, and while the user-friendly online HSA tools you need are critical, the concepts of overall wellness and better financial health span every aspect of Bend HSA’s approach to making your life easier—and making your HSA experience better.
Adoption of a technology-based platform like Bend HSA will only serve to further benefit those who are willing to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to their HSA. Because Bend doesn’t just use technology reactively—we’re tech proactive. It’s just one of the premises that forges the Bend Difference.
Bend HSA takes technology a step further through the Bend Advisor by leveraging cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to support and engage you at a deeper level by recognizing patterns and suggesting optimizations tailored to each unique individual and situation. Our innovative technologies help you boost your HSA education and knowledge base and empower you to take control of your financial health—all virtually.
