Getting More From Your Benefits

Getting More From Your Benefits

Everyone is looking for the BEST option when it comes to careers. We all want the best pay, but sometimes, what's more important is the added benefits that come along with that paycheck. For me, I want to know if a business offers good health benefits, 401(k), and ways to help me save and grow my money to prepare for the future. With steep competition in the job market, some companies are going above and beyond your basic benefits package and retirement account offerings. They are going much bigger than traditional FSAs, HSAs, and HRAs. They are looking at the big picture, the long-term investment into new talent. If you are curious about how to stay competitive with larger, big-name employers, Medcom has new and improved offerings for our Consumer Driven Health Plans that provide the edge you need!

What's New?

Medcom knows that retaining talent gets harder and harder. That's why we are consistently searching for those added perks to enhance your employee benefits package. This year alone, we gained three additional ways to attract new talent and hold on to the team you've worked hard to build.

The New Medcom Mobile App

Our new mobile app is more than your typical account management app. Medcom Mobile provides personalized, proactive recommendations that guide employees through their healthcare journey. It allows account holders to receive real-time insights on how to spend, save, and invest their healthcare dollars. Medcom mobile delivers the standard app functions such as account balances and transaction history, the ability to submit claims and substantiate receipts, and view and manage debit cards and PINs. Still, the additional functions blow the competition out of the water.

  • Pay bills and request reimbursements
  • Receive real-time alerts and account notifications
  • Alerts for cheaper prescriptions and pharmacies
  • Prompts to max-out prior-year contributions, making the most of their money
  • Set-up direct deposit
  • Get recommendations for spending & saving based on chronic conditions
  • Funding calculators and provider location assistance

Our new Medcom Mobile app has much more to offer employees, making it harder for them to say no to healthcare spending and saving! We make it so easy!

 

Medcom's Partnership with Health Advocate
