In addition to the regulatory climate, there also are consumer-driven health care plan models, such as health savings accounts (HSAs), health reimbursement accounts (HRAs), and hybrid plans.
When a high-deductible plan is combined with a health reimbursement account, employees can be compensated if they go beyond the $5,000 to $10,000 deductible, up to the health reimbursement account's maximum.
Much like an FSA, health reimbursement accounts (HRAs) are made up of "untaxed" funds that are redeemable upon a qualified health care expense (Siegal, 2007).
There are different ways to solve this out-of-pocket expense dilemma: Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), and Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs).
The legislation gives consumers the ability to invest up to $5,650 in tax-free health savings accounts (HSA) in addition to a possible one-time tax-free transfer from a flexible spending account, a health reimbursement account, or an individual retirement account to a patient's HSA.
Most plans attach a health savings account (HSA) or health reimbursement account (HRA), a cross between a flexible spending account, a 401K and an IRA.
For example, in one of WellPoint's consumer-driven health plans that uses a health reimbursement account, "we pay consumers more to take health risk assessments, we pay them more to enroll in personal health coaching programs in disease and care management, and we pay them more to graduate."
Most of them have familiar acronyms: PPO (preferred provider organization), FSA (flexible spending account), HMO (health maintenance organization), POS (point of service), MSA (medical savings account), HRA (health reimbursement account), and most recently, HDHP (high deductible health plan) and HSA (health savings account).
While there are different versions of "consumer-driven health care," most interest has centered on combining a high-deductible health insurance plan (e.g., $1,500) with a health reimbursement account (HRA) to cover part of the out-of-pocket cost of health care expenses (e.g., $500).
This sets the stage for the more complex support needed when employees move to a high-deductible health plan supported by a health reimbursement account or health savings account.
By utilizing the Health Reimbursement Account, the employer is back in control of the cost mechanism of his employee health plan, while still providing a comprehensive benefit package for the employee.
