Health Reimbursement Arrangement

Give your employees additional health coverage flexibility

Why provide a Health Reimbursement Arrangement?

A Health Reimbursement Arrangement allows employees to pay eligible health care costs tax free. As the employer, you have flexibility and control in deciding which expenses to cover. Balances may roll over at year-end but don't accrue interest, and employees can't take the balance with them when they leave.
