Many organizations are now introducing one or more HSA medical options for employees, or re-emphasizing their existing HSA option(s) for them.
“As a result of rising premiums and the uncertainty being brought on by the Affordable Care Act, industry experts expect more employers to use account-based plans like high-deductible health plans. A March Towers Watson & Co./National Business Group on Health survey showed no respondents used account-based plans as their sole option in 2010, but 12 percent used this strategy this year; that figure is expected to nearly double in 2014.” – http://www.workforce.com/articles/9153
It can be difficult to get employees to pay attention and learn why HSAs are a good option to consider and understand how they work. However, the basic concepts are fairly simple. This video takes a light-hearted, visual approach to engage attention and explain the basics.
We can custom-fit the video to an employer’s specific plan information and any specific issues their employees may need to consider. If your company would benefit from this video or other employee communications, please contact me. We would love to help!
