An idea for managing costs of your group insurance with a tax deduction
A HRA (Health Reimbursement Arrangement) can be key in managing the costs of your group insurance plan. The HRA is used specifically toward paying employee health care and medical expenses.
The HRA account is funded by you, the employer — you choose the pre-defined amount to fund. You also choose how to administer employee medical expense reimbursements. This type of plan is a popular option for reimbursing things like employee deductibles and co-insurance costs. Any reimbursements made to employees are tax deductible for employers.
Capital BlueCross offers the HRA in conjunction with its High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) coverage. For more information, please click here.
