Help manage rising costs
Adding health expense funds to a benefits package can help employees save money. And employers can help lower expenses by:
- Sharing the costs of a high-deductible health plan
- Getting FICA and FUTA tax savings on salary reductions that occur when employees contribute
Funds for a variety of needs
Health reimbursement arrangement (HRA)*
HRAs allow employers to pass along savings to employees while still controlling costs.
HSAs are portable, able to earn interest and are eligible for rollover contributions.
Employees put in money before taxes and can use it to pay for covered health care and dependent care expenses.
Retirement reimbursement arrangement (RRA)***
Think of this as an HRA that a business can offer employees when they retire to help them budget their health-related finances.
*HRAs are currently not available to HMO members in Illinois and Small Group members in Florida.
**HSAs are currently not available to HMO members in California and Illinois.
***RRAs are subject to employer-defined use and forfeiture rules.
