Health Savings Accounts (HSA)
When you offer a Health Savings Accounts (HSA), employees are encouraged to become informed health care consumers and make better health care decisions. An HSA provides your workforce a stake in managing their own health care purchasing, which may result in lower use of physician visits for a cold or sore throat, resulting in savings for them and you.
An HSA account allows employer and employee contributions and when offered under a cafeteria plan, saves tax dollars. Most importantly, an HSA account is portable – employees keep any unused funds for use in future years and to roll over those funds when they leave the company.
