Sika Health and Electromedical Announce Partnership Enabling HSA/FSA Payments on Electromedical eCommerce Site
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Electromedical Technologies, Inc. (OTC-QB: EMED) (“Electromedical” or the “Company”), a pioneer in the development and production of bioelectronic devices designed to relieve chronic, intractable, and acute pain through frequency and electro-modulation, and Sika Health, an HSA/FSA payment facilitator for eCommerce merchants, are pleased to announce a partnership enabling the direct acceptance of HSA/FSA payments on the Electromedical eCommerce website (electromedtech.com).
“This is a game-changer in terms of our ability to facilitate payments and tap into greater affordability without sacrificing margins,” remarked Matthew Wolfson, CEO and Founder of Electromedical. “Sika’s payment technology is seamless and easy to use, and the Sika team has been exceptional to work with.”
The integration between Sika’s payment technology and Electromedical’s direct website enables millions who suffer from chronic pain to purchase products through HSA/FSA without reimbursing through their healthcare administrator via receipt.
Around 70 million Americans hold HSA/FSA accounts. In 2020 alone, workers lost $4.2 billion in expired FSA benefits. However, few online merchants offer a payment gateway that enables consumers to spend these dollars directly.
The partnership between Sika Health and Electromedical aims to close this gap and offer patients a seamless way to take full advantage of their benefits.
Sika Health CEO, Ami Kumordzie MD/MBA, stated, “We look forward to working with Electromedical Technologies to offer patients a way to buy FDA cleared products for pain relief, such as the WellnessPro Plus, directly with their HSA/FSA funds. We are pleased to increase access to personal wellness products like WellnessPro Plus that can reduce dependency on medications at a more affordable cost.”
About Sika Health
Sika enables online shoppers to pay using their HSA/FSA funds as easily as spending a gift card. No eligibility checks, paperwork or delays – customers simply select Sika at checkout, enter their HSA/FSA card details, and we take care of the rest.
