Employer Trends for HRA, FSA, and HSAs

Do you want to understand more about current FSA, HRA, and HSAs trends? Do you know what the employer’s role is and how much can be contributed? How about which laws govern these benefits? If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us for a discussion where we’ll take a deep dive into the intricacies of employer trends for FSAs, HRAs, and HSAs. We’ll evaluate current economic pressures, tackle employer concerns and define the laws that impact and govern FSA, HRA and HSAs. Additionally, participants will understand the employer’s role, which employees are eligible, and define how employer contributions can be used.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand differences between FSA, HRA, and HAS
  • Recognize which federal laws govern FSA, HRA, and HSA
  • Know the advantages and disadvantages from a financial and benefits perspective for the employer and the employee
