An HSA is an attractive benefit option increasingly expected by employees. You have the option to make tax-free contributions to employee accounts. Employee contributions to their own accounts through payroll deduction reduce your taxes.*
- Employer contributions are tax free
- Employee contributions through payroll deduction reduce employer taxes
Because HSAs must be linked to a high-deductible health plan (HDHP), employers who offer HSAs in combination with a health plan save on premium costs. Because HDHPs put spending control in the hands of employees, over time you may see reduced utilization costs.
- Reduced health plan premium costs
- Control over health care utilization costs
