WEX’s Health Division Kicks Off WEX SPARK Health 2019

Sponsored by Businesswire

(NYSE: WEX), a leading financial technology service provider,
today kicked off WEX
Health SPARK 2019, its 12th annual go-to industry event, at
Fontainebleau Miami Beach. A crowd of WEX’s Health partners, who with
WEX help 343,000 employers and more than 28 million consumers better
manage healthcare expenses, are in attendance.

Jeff Young, president, Health, WEX, will share with attendees the
achievements and momentum that have resulted in more than half of
Fortune 1000 companies—52 percent—choosing the WEX Health Cloud as their
technology platform for demanding and complex benefit programs. Mel
Robbins, best-selling author, entrepreneur and social media influencer,
will inspire the crowd with her knowledge and insight on The 5 Second
Rule and the science and success behind it.

Partners will see new and upcoming enhancements as well as gain insight
into the broader Health product strategy that encompasses features and
functionality across business intelligence, health savings accounts
(HSAs), mobile, COBRA and billing solutions. Enhancements in the
upcoming WEX Health Cloud June Product Release will improve the consumer
experience, including CDH Mobile App Quick Receipt Upload and a new
COBRA Member Portal Open Enrollment tool. In addition, we continue our
commitment to business intelligence through several enhancements to the
Administrator Dashboard.

Partners will also get a glimpse of upcoming enhancements to Partner
Central, the online Partner Portal, including enhanced navigation and
Solution Providers functionality. Since its introduction in March of
2014, Partner Central has seen immense growth, with more than 85 percent
of WEX’s Health partners enrolled in the portal.

“Year after year, our annual partner gathering enables us to come
together for a powerful agenda of learning, networking and celebrating,”
said Young. “We are committed to providing an exceptional value
proposition to our partners, and SPARK 2019 is a tremendous proof point
of that. We look forward to an incredible time spent with an incredible
group of people.”

Key learning from our consumer research report, Clear Insights, which
was released during last year’s annual partner gathering, revealed that
many people are unaware of the benefits associated with their
consumer-directed health plans and/or are not taking full advantage of
them. As such, WEX’s Health division invested in a series of
consumer-focused research studies, including partnering with Visa to
conduct an in-depth qualitative study into the emotions people have
about their HSAs and flexible spending accounts (FSAs). A composite
summary of findings from all studies will be included in the 2019
research report unveiled at the conference.

At SPARK 2019, WEX’s Health division will launch its new awareness
initiative: National HSA Awareness Day (HSA Day). The event, which will
take place annually on October 15, will be dedicated to bringing the
public and the healthcare benefits industry together to discuss the
power of HSAs and their ability to impact some of the most prevalent
healthcare issues Americans face today, including: managing
health-related out-of-pocket expenses, preparing for unexpected
healthcare costs and planning for retirement.

SPARK 2019 will include nearly 90 learning opportunities across
concurrent breakout sessions, innovation demo stage presentations,
spotlight sessions, learning labs and partner panels. Additionally, the
event will include numerous networking opportunities, a sponsor expo and
the annual partner awards dinner and program, which celebrates partners’
successes and achievements in simplifying the business of healthcare.

SPARK 2019 is sponsored by strategic and business partners, including
2nd.MD, AHEAD, Allison Payment Systems, a doxim Company, Aon, Axinn,
Baker Tilly Vantagen LLC, Benefitfocus, BPAS, Bravo, Change Healthcare,
Coherent Solutions, Compass IT Compliance, Dell Technologies, ECFC, FIS,

Benefits, Marco, Mastercard, Mutual of Omaha Bank, MyHealthMath, Onlife
Health, QRG, RSA, RTO Benefits, The Bancorp, TPA Stream, UMB Healthcare
Services, Visa and White Birch View.

SPARK Local events will be held on September 13 in New York City,
September 17 in Minneapolis, and October 7 in Denver. These events will
continue the SPARK momentum through the year and be comprised of
material pertinent to brokers, public sector and sales/marketing
individuals, and will also continue the momentum of product release

Highlights and news announcements from SPARK 2019 will be shared in real
time via Twitter #WEXSPARK2019.
