Change Healthcare recently integrated its Engagement Platform with HealthEquity, so that its users can see their real-time HSA account balances. Conversely, HealthEquity incorporated Change Healthcare's proactive savings alerts into its platform to help its users identify opportunities to save on their most common and recurring medical, dental, vision and pharmacy purchases.
