Health-E Commerce® partners with Nectar to make diagnostic allergy testing and custom allergen drop prescriptions available on FSA Store® and HSA Store®

New partnership gives consumers enrolled in flexible spending accounts (FSA) and health savings accounts (HSA) access to Nectar’s diagnostic kit and allergy relief medications


DALLAS (June 26, 2024) – Allergies are having a heyday right now, causing more than 80 million people to experience symptoms like congestion, headaches, cough, itchy or watery eyes, and even life-threatening anaphylaxis. To accurately treat allergies, diagnostic testing may be needed, but can be difficult and time consuming to schedule. Thanks to a new partnership between Health-E Commerce and Nectar, FSA and HSA users now have access to at-home diagnostic kits and treatment at FSA Store and HSA Store


Nectar Allergy Testing

“Seasonal allergies are more than a minor inconvenience. They can cause people to feel sick and sluggish, and ultimately may lead to decreased work performance and a retreat from outdoor activities,” said Keri Kaiser, chief revenue officer for Health-E Commerce, parent brand to FSA Store and HSA Store. “We’re proud to give millions of FSA and HSA users easier access to convenient, reliable at-home allergy testing and treatment through our new partnership with Nectar so they can put allergies to rest and live their best lives this summer.” 


Nectar customers receive an allergy testing kit in the mail that screens for up to 40 environmental allergens in their specific region of the country. Results are analyzed and processed by a CLIA-certified lab and delivered to the individual online. Each Nectar customer receives a personalized treatment plan based on their testing results and can receive personalized prescription allergy nasal spray and immunotherapy drops to treat their specific mix of sensitivities. As a result of this partnership, individuals who shop FSA Store and HSA Store will receive $20 off the at-home Nectar testing kit and will pay nothing to have their results reviewed with a licensed provider, saving them an additional $35.


“Nectar is on a mission to put an end to allergies by using immunotherapy to help people build a resistance to the allergens that negatively impact their health,” said Ken Chahine, CEO & Founder, Nectar. “Allergy care needs a category leader that is an advocate for the consumer and brings together cutting-edge scientific research, modern customer technology, and a delightful customer experience.”

Allergies can make day-to-day life challenging for many adults, and fully understanding what causes them can require diagnostic testing, which can be costly and time-consuming. More than 80 million people experience symptoms like congestion, headaches, cough, itchy or watery eyes, and for some, life-threatening anaphylaxis. Fortunately, a new partnership between Health-E Commerce and Nectar gives millions of people who are enrolled in flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) easy access to lab-certified diagnostic allergy testing and personalized allergy medications.
