HSAs, HRAs, and FSAs: Health Care Options After Affordable Care (HSA)

8-Hour Program

WHY ATTEND THIS COURSE?

Can a business owner afford to offer more for insurance benefits than just the mandated minimum in the current environment? That’s the challenge. This program explores recent changes in cafeteria plans and explains the options available for existing and new plans. Side-by-side comparisons will show when an HSA, HRA, or FSA is better, for what type of client, and when they should be considered. Contrary to popular rumor, employers do have some flexibility when designing health care plans for their employees.
