Sign Up Now. Use your tax-free dollars to pay for BLR even before your FSA/HSA/HRA contributions are deducted from your paycheck.
Step 1: Double-check with your Plan
We recommend you call your plan and confirm that you can apply your FSA, HSA, HRA, or MSA dollars to a weight loss program – BLR. The IRS says yes if the program is recommended by a physician for the treatment of obesity or hypertension. However, we recommend you double-confirm with your particular plan.
Step 2: See Your Physician
Print out and bring this Letter of Medical Necessity to your doctor. If your doctor determines that you have a weight-related medical condition and feels more comprehensive obesity management services are advised, have her or him fill out and sign the form.
Step 3: Enroll During Open Enrollment (typically during November and December)
Talk to your plan and follow the steps they provide. For an FSA you should be able to use the dollars you commit for all of 2016 as early as January 2016. For an HSA determine your contribution schedule so you can apply accrued funds to your BLR stay.
Step 4: Book Your Stay
Call BLR to book your stay.
Step 5: Experience BLR and Submit
After your stay at BLR submit your signed Letter of Medical Necessity and your BLR receipts to your plan.
