A Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) is a common benefit account, but some employers may shy away from offering one since they don’t know the Health Reimbursement Arrangement rules. However, HRAs are easy to understand and BASIC makes them a breeze to add to any benefits package!

  1. HRAs are employer funded and owned
    1. HRAs are funded and owned by the employer, not the employee. That means any contributions are made by the employer and if an employee leaves the company they may be required to forfeit their HRA funds.
  2. Rules and limits are set by the government, but employers have plenty of options to customize the specific HRA they choose to offer.
  3. There are multiple types of HRAs, each with their own rules. This allows employers to offer exactly the right type of plan that fits their organization’s needs!
  4. Below are a few examples of popular HRAs.
