A Wellness Spending Account is a special account for employees to claim wellness related activities. The benefit is taxable to the employee and a tax deduction for the employer.

The WSA is complementary to an HSA and helps to provide a comprehensive approach to employee well being. The WSA offers products and services that give employees a proactive approach to their health and well being.

Go beyond health and dental

Emotional and mental health, prevention of illness, physical fitness, social well being and financial well being are key areas for consideration when it comes to employee well being. These wellness related activities are often not eligible with an HSA or insurance plan.
