BODi users with an HSA or FSA account can go through an online medical consultation with Dr. B to determine whether they qualify for a Letter of Medical Necessity, which would allow for BODi’s fitness expenses to be eligible for reimbursement from their pre-tax HSA/FSA funds.

By not requiring an on-site visit to a doctor, the partnership saves time and money for those who qualify. BODi subscribers can visit the Dr. B ( website, complete an online medical consultation in just minutes, receive a Letter of Medical Necessity (if qualified), and submit the letter with BODi receipts to their HSA or FSA administrator for reimbursement.

“For over 25 years our mission at BODi has been to help people lead healthy and fulfilling lives,” says Carl Daikeler, BODi’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The barrier of time and money is real for many who would benefit from the tools on the BODi platform. We believe our partnership with Dr. B will remove these barriers that prevent many from getting started and this unique combination of financial and fitness solutions will help even more people improve their lives and build healthy habits.”

“Current trends indicate that the future of fitness lies in companies that double down on programs that encourage whole-body health and longevity,” says Cyrus Massoumi, founder and CEO of Dr. B. “That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with BODi. They offer our patients integrated fitness, nutrition and mindset programs to help them succeed through every step along their journey. The more Dr. B can help individuals invest in BODi’s health esteem mindset, the better for all of us.”
