AUTHENTICITY. RESPONSIBILITY. TRUST.

We believe companies that sell IRS-qualified health products have an obligation to ensure their authenticity to the American families who rely on them.

At Health-E Commerce we're committed to distributing up-to-date, responsibly sourced and safe-to-use products. But with the rise of online marketplaces, buying safe, authentic health products is no longer guaranteed. It’s hard to ensure proper storage, product sourcing or packaging when working through third parties, where strict adherence to company standards and practices is not required. There are no guarantees that the merchandise is not expired, spoiled, counterfeit or even stolen. The absence of these standards can be potentially dangerous to the health of customers, who may have unknowingly received and been using inauthentic products or cheap imitations to treat a health condition.

The Health-E Commerce Guidelines

     Our pledge to maintain our commitment to tax-free health care consumers led us to

create the following guidelines. The 'Health-E Guidelines' represent an industry-first 

effort to put pro-consumer initiatives into practice so they can inform the larger health

and wellness industry and better serve the 60+ million plus tax-advantaged health

care users nationwide.

 

To operate responsibly in the tax-free health benefits space, we recommends that

brands or manufacturers who market products to these consumers should uphold the following business practices:

ADHERENCE TO IRS ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

We are committed to selling eligible health and wellness products in a manner that adheres to the IRS’ definition of qualified health expenses. Our brands are dedicated to advancing safe and reliable means for consumers to purchase qualifying health and wellness products with their tax-free dollars.

DIRECT-TO-MANUFACTURER RELATIONSHIPS ENSURE PRODUCT AUTHENTICITY

We are committed to sourcing products directly from manufacturers to ensure customers receive safe, effective, authentic health products to support their overall wellness and the well-being of their families. We never knowingly work with third-party resellers in order to ensure that the products we sell are up-to-date, responsibly sourced and safe to use.

ADVOCATES FOR CONSUMER-DIRECTED HEALTH CARE PRESERVATION AND EXPANSION

         We know how vital tax-free health care accounts are for working families. We support the continued expansion of these accounts to improve health outcomes and prevention via products and services eligible with pre-tax health care dollars.

A COMPLIANCE-FIRST APPROACH

Compliance with industry regulations is built into every facet of what it means to be a Health-E Commerce brand. By guaranteeing proper benefit card payment processing, maintaining accurate on-site information, correct product classification, and clear, accurate marketing language, our brands help consumers avoid common tax-free health care pitfalls and make these benefits an integral part of their health and financial wellness.

EMPOWERS CONSUMERS TO MAKE INFORMED HEALTH DECISIONS

Our customers are not left alone to navigate the complex world of tax-free health care. Our brands are backed by 24/7 FSA/HSA-certified customer support and the web’s most comprehensive selection of tools and educational resources to help individuals and families learn how to benefit better from their benefits.
