Bend Financial (Bend), an industry-leading health savings account (HSA) provider, today announced that Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC), a Point32Health company, has selected Bend as a preferred HSA vendor for high-deductible health plan (HDHP) options offered to its employer-sponsored commercial members.

The collaboration marks a significant expansion into the health plan space for Bend, with Point32Health and its family of companies providing health benefit plans, programs and services to more than 2.2 million members in New England. Tufts Health Plan named Bend Financial as a preferred HSA provider in November 2020.

“Bend’s leading-edge HSA platform aligns perfectly with our commitment to guiding our members to better health along with better financial wellness,” explained James Gallagher, Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy for Point32Health. “We’re excited for our members to experience Bend’s outstanding user focus and to take advantage of all the tools and resources available to help them quickly and easily maximize all aspects of their HSA.”

Bend implements a proactive, HSA-centric approach to its platform. Each Bend HSA offers personalized guidance, comprehensive education, time-saving automations, best-in-class investment options and more, all designed to simplify health care saving and make it easy for anyone to plan, track, save and pay for their health care expenses.

“It’s an honor to be chosen as a preferred HSA provider for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care,” noted Tom Torre, CEO of Bend. “The Bend HSA platform was created from its inception to integrate seamlessly with health plans and provide a streamlined solution to a real market need. We look forward to continued collaboration and helping Harvard Pilgrim members achieve better financial wellness through their HSAs.”
