J.P. Morgan Enhances Health Savings Accounts

New and Improved Capabilities Deliver Better Customer Experience and
More Robust Medical Expense Management Tools

New York, July 24, 2012 – J.P. Morgan’s (NYSE: JPM) Treasury Services business, a full-service provider of cash management, trade finance, treasury solutions and escrow services, today announced significant enhancements and improved capabilities for its health savings account (HSA) program.

The enhancements include new mobile capabilities, updates to the online user experience, as well as improvements to the Chase HSA medical expense management tools. In addition to improved account access from mobile devices, users will have more control and a better understanding of their annual HSA contributions, and advanced tools to manage qualified medical expenses. 

“As medical costs continue to increase, we’re striving to ensure our customers are in the driver’s seat when it comes to maximizing benefits from their health savings account,” said Elena Szymanski, Executive Director and Senior Product Manager, J.P. Morgan Treasury Services. “Enhancing the online experience and investing in product and service enhancements for HSAs will help customers leverage opportunities to get the most from every healthcare dollar.”

New Mobile Capabilities – Vital HSA Information Delivered to Accountholder’s Finger Tips 
The new HSA mobile capabilities allow individuals to interact with the HSA regardless of their device.  Accountholders may use their mobile device (enabled to send SMS text messages) to text Chase and request information such as their HSA balance, YTD contribution information and recent transactions. 

Additionally, accountholders may visit “Chase HSA Mobile” from their Smartphone web browser to see account-related information, lists of qualified expenses intended to help customers when making purchases and more.

Enhanced HSA Contribution Tracking
Accountholders and employers are looking for more proactive ways to monitor contributions and ensure that IRS annual maximums are not exceeded.  The upgraded Chase HSA website now displays a year-to-date contribution status graphic with IRS limits that can be tied to a custom text or email alert that is triggered based on a specific threshold set.

Medical Expense Management Tools – Valuable Insight into Overall Medical Spend
Accountholders now have the ability to capture more details about HSA expenses and better understand their overall medical spending via new expense management tools.   The new tools enable accountholders to add details for qualified medical expenses paid from both the HSA as well as other sources, and easily reimburse themselves for expenses paid outside their HSA.  A new graphical representation of qualified and non-qualified expenses also makes it easy to see how medical spend is being allocated. 

“We are a leader within the HSA industry, and as such are always looking at ways to improve functionalities to ensure our accountholders are getting the best value and experience,” added Syzmanski.  “We will continue to bring the kinds of HSA-related innovations and reliable performance accountholders have become accustomed to receiving from JP Morgan Chase.”

According to the Consumer Driven Market Report, J.P. Morgan is the largest health savings account administrator in the country, and currently administers more than 900,000 HSA’s with more than $1.5 billion dollars in deposits.  For more information about J.P.
