Wellknit Services provides innovative insurance and compensation solutions. We administer employer sponsored group benefit programs that focus on choice.
Our core service is administering tax-free Health Spending Accounts (HSA). An employer allocates pre-tax dollars to a special account and each employee decides how to spend their health money. They, and their health professionals, determine what products and services are appropriate, not the claims processing department of an Insurer.
