CVS/pharmacy Makes It Easier for Consumers to Save Money and Track Spending with Health Savings and Flexible Spending Accounts
Date:6/18/2008

WOONSOCKET, R.I., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent study(1), more than 6.1 million Americans are currently enrolled in health savings account (HSA)-eligible insurance plans, a 35 percent increase since last year. Consumers are increasingly turning to health savings and flexible spending accounts (FSAs) to cut costs associated with health care.

ExtraCare members who choose CVS/pharmacy for HSA/FSA-eligible purchases save money and time by eliminating the hassle previously associated with validation of HSA/FSA claims. ExtraCare cardholders still receive quarterly Extra Bucks earned for HSA/FSA-eligible transactions, as well as any applicable instant rewards.
