Many people have been calling Simplee “the Mint.com of healthcare.” The free web tool is a fantastic, effortless way to manage your health expenses in one centralized place. You can view claims for your entire family, check on your benefits, track your spending and pay bills online.
For the month of February, Simplee is having a “Month of Giving” and is offering an exclusive discount for the Mint community: Pay a bill through Simplee and they’ll cover $20 of it. No other strings attached! The bill pay is HIPAA compliant and secure and the best part is, you’ll never have to sort through piles of paper wondering if you’ve paid all your bills.
So how does Simplee work? Much like Mint: You supply the log-in and password for your online health plan account. Simplee pulls your benefits information and statements and gives you a dashboard to see clearly see your bills and spending. If you have more than one health plan, you can see it all together.
Simplee’s goal with the Month of Giving is to encourage consumers to really get involved in understanding their health care spending because that awareness is what you need to be a financially savvy health consumer. “Consumers can and will save money if they just pay attention,” says Simplee CEO Tomer Shoval. One Simplee user in New York saved over $1,400 when he noticed in his account that an insurer had been billing him incorrectly for an entire year.
To receive $20 off your medical bill, just enter the code “mintblog” when you pay your bill and Simplee will automatically discount your bill.
