Since implementing Sika Health, a hydration therapy company has seen that shoppers who utilize HSA/FSA funds spend more than 116% more in their baskets compared to regular credit/debit card shoppers. This company tells us this is due to their customers considering their HSA/FSA funds as “already spent” and are therefore looking to stock up on qualified items or upgrade to a higher-priced SKU to ensure their health funds are not lost. Sika supports merchants to create a commerce experience that supports easy payments, which in turn helps grow average order value.
A postpartum care company has experienced a 75% decrease in return rates from shoppers who pay with HSA/FSA funds, when compared with shoppers that spend with credit card and buy-now-pay-later methods. Sika Health's offering helps HSA/FSA shoppers to easily spend money that is often sitting idle in pre-tax benefit accounts. As a result, when shoppers spend with these accounts they are less likely to return the item since these are often "use-it-or-lose it" funds. Sika Health partners with merchants to ensure a seamless journey when spending these regulated health.

We work with many retailers who previously processed HSA/FSA cards on their own, but made the switch to Sika for a more seamless customer experience and to adhere with the latest compliance guidelines. Specifically, companies billing HSA/FSA cards for anything other than check-ups and co-pays are actually required to have an inventory management system (IIAS). That requirement applies to retailers of glasses, sunscreens, hearing aids, exercise equipment, and more. In fact, the IRS recently called for more audits of HSA/FSA purchases from healthcare service providers related to this very issue - See IRS Memorandum. With Sika, there's no need to change your Merchant Category Codes (MCC) to work around this — any business can compliantly accept these regulated funds with the correct infrastructure, processed through our platform.
