1.0 HRCI & SHRM CE Credits
Health Reimbursement Arrangements (“HRAs”), Medical Flexible Spending Accounts (“FSAs”), and Health Savings Accounts (“HSAs”) all share one feature: they are individual account-based arrangements. That, however, is where the similarities between the three end. This webinar will explore the different features of HRAs, FSAs, and HSAs to help employers decide which option best supplements their group health plan. Many times the best arrangement is not a single option. So, this webinar will also address the legal issues that employers must be aware of when offering its employees more than one of these account-based arrangements.
Tripp will present for 60 minutes regarding the above topic. The remainder of the time will be devoted to Q&A and information regarding BASIC FSA, HRA and HSA Administration.
BASIC’s webinar is approved for 1.0 HRCI and 1 SHRM-CP credits for advanced professional credentials for HR professionals worldwide. Credits are only available for live attendance.
