Medical and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (“FSAs”) have been around for several years and they are still widely used by employers of various sizes. Because of their long history and wide-use, sponsors of FSAs tend to overlook various legal pitfalls that may arise in the administration of FSAs. This webinar will provide an overview of Medical and Dependent Care FSAs, an explanation of the factors that employers should consider when adopting FSAs, and identification of the specific issues that can make the proper administration of FSAs challenging.

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 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.

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.
