Price Transparency

Unearthing the price of health-related items is often more difficult (and frustrating) than it should be. But with price transparency tools like GoodRx and Healthcare Bluebook, you can find the product you need at a price that’s clear at the start.

If you have a pre-tax benefit account like a Flexible Spending Account, Health Savings Account, or Commuter Benefit Account, you’re already ahead of the game. Each dollar going into a pre-tax benefit account saves you 30 to 40 cents per dollar.

On top of that, your pre-tax funds are designated for health-related or commuter-related purposes. If you have a health-related account, look into a self-care day to keep your stress levels low. You may need a letter of medical necessity from your doctor for certain items (like a massage), but it’ll be worth it. If you have a commuter account, learn how to make your commute more relaxing here.
