Elevate and Visa Collaborate on “Push to Debit” Health Reimbursements

Fast Reimbursements Encourage Employees to Utilize the Full Breadth of Healthcare Benefits, a Competitive Advantage for Employers Looking to Upscale Benefits Programs

Elevate, the next generation consumer directed benefits platform, announced its collaboration with Visa to implement Visa Direct, Visa’s real-time push payments platform, enabling Elevate customers to offer their employees quick and seamless access to their healthcare reimbursements.

Employees’ frustrating, time consuming experiences when requesting reimbursements for covered medical and related expenses using their FSAs, HSAs, and HRAs, have limited the uptake and use of employer-offered healthcare benefits across the U.S.

With the Elevate program, employers can offer a secure and completely user-friendly service to their employees, who will no longer feel bogged down or hamstrung by the complicated process of submitting or receiving reimbursements for covered medical expenses. Elevate’s embeddable, API (application programming interface)-driven, full benefits administration platform seamlessly manages and powers out-of-pocket costs and uses OCR (optical character recognition) technology to read uploaded receipts and reimburse employees within the same day via direct deposit to their checking accounts, Venmo accounts, or now, with Visa Direct, to their eligible debit cards and prepaid cards in real-time.
