Amethyst is Ametros’ self-administration service. With Amethyst, the individual does not pre-fund an account that we manage. Instead, they keep the funds that they wish to spend on medical items in their own bank account. They provide Amethyst with the debit card they would like to store on file to pay for medical purchases. With Amethyst, we provide the individual with access to group discounts to potentially save money on their medical treatments, while helping to compile any necessary reporting. This differs from our professional administration service, CareGuard, where we act as a custodian, because with Amethyst the funds remain in the individual’s own bank account.
